RANGELEY, MAINE — Orgonon, The Wilhelm Reich Museum, Dodge Pond Road, Rangeley, is open Saturdays only in September from 1-5 p.m. It will close for the 2013 October 1st. Private tours are offered until the end of October for a fee of $100.00 for up to ten people.
Few places in the world combine the intellectual fascination and raw natural beauty of Orgonon, home of one of the 20th century’s most controversial figures, Austrian born physician-scientist Wilhelm Reich.
Now maintained as The Wilhelm Reich Museum, Orgonon is an historic site and nature preserve comprising 175 acres of fields and woodland, a system of trails, a Conference Center, and the Orgone Energy Observatory.
Children can explore a hands-on Discovery Room. And the Observatory roof provides spectacular vistas of the region’s open skies, lakes, and surrounding countryside.
Reich’s tomb, with its dramatic bronze portrait bust, is in a forest clearing nearby.
