We are pleased to introduce Alberta Willey as our new Store & Facilities Manager. Alberta is a long-time resident of Southwest Harbor and knows the Island and visitor trends well. She has previously volunteered for several events at the museum, serving drinks, working with guests, and providing food. She has very much enjoyed working with the Museum team in the past and is excited to join the team as staff.

Alberta is retired from running her own business as a seamstress; she also worked for Hinckley, and most recently in sales at Caroll’s Drugs. Based on her experience at Caroll’s, Alberta has great insight into items summer visitors enjoy, and she brings to the Museum relationships with local vendors as well. Alberta has some great ideas for enhancing the store, such as offering local Maine and MDI products, and more items that would have appeal for women. We all look forward to working with her this season; Alberta has already proven to be a wonderful addition to our team!
