Abstract

Wilhelm Reich's Orgone Energy Observatory, now the Wilhelm Reich Museum, is a modernist masterpiece designed by James B. Bell and unveiled in 1951. It was built of stone on a mountaintop in Rangeley, set on a rock ledge to dampen vibration that might affect his scientific instruments. Reich pioneered controversial experiments on the accumulation of sexual energy and died in jail, where he was sent for marketing his orgone boxes.
