The Cobscook Community Learning Center is situated on fifty acres of former farmstead and forest land in Trescott Township, Maine, between the towns of Whiting and Lubec. In 2002 eight area high school students worked under the guidance of a nationally recognized landscape architect Todd Richardson to create the CCLC's land use and campus plan. The plan included five buildings - an office space, Commons building, dormitory, caretaker's residence, and yurt classroom on a 10 acre plot surrounded by 40 acres of sanctuary lands. The grounds around the CCLC serve as an outdoor classroom.
In 2003 we secured the funds to build the timber frame office, now known as Rice Hall. Work commenced in the spring of 2004 with a community "barn raising" of the timber frame. We moved into our permanent home late that year and construction was completed in January of 2005.
The newest addition to the campus is a fifty-bed dormitory, the Heartwood Lodge, which was finished in 2014.
