About Us

The Maine Country Music Hall of Fame was founded in 1978. In 2008 the Museum was established in the lower level of the Silver Spur in Mechanic Falls, Maine where the grand opening was held. The 3000 square foot space is an amazing showcase for thousands of historic memorabilia accumulated over the decades, many of which were, and continue to be, donated by the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame inductees and their heirs. The beautiful displays of guitars, banjos and other instruments, costumes, photos, LP recordings and more tell the history of Maine country music and bring to life the memory and musical contributions of its inductees which are some of the finest country musicians in the U.S.

The Museum is the only physical country music hall of fame museum east of Nashville! There are currently 135 inductees with the next annual induction ceremony set for May 17, 2020 at the Silver Spur.

Currently a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Museum is open year round by appointment. A guided tour by Founder and Inductee Slim Andrews of Auburn is highly recommended. Groups of any size and age are welcome. There is plenty of free parking in the lot.
