DescriptionTraditional handcrafting became a major industry in Orland with the 1970 establishment of H.O.M.E. (Home-workers Organized for More Employment). The cooperative, which began as an outlet for locally made products, has since expanded to include a chapel, a museum, a lumber mill, pottery and weaving shops and an extensive rural education program.
Various craft demonstrations can be seen at the H.O.M.E. compound, which is at the corner of US 1 and School House Road; for further information phone (207) 469-7961.
The town's many lakes and streams as well as the Narramissic River are popular with swimmers, canoeists and kayakers.
