About this title

Synopsis:

Maine's premier tourist destination, Bar Harbor has many historic buildings. The area was once a shipbuilding and farming hamlet that became a Gilded Age resort of the highest order-until a fire in 1947 destroyed many of its buildings. This pictorial history takes Bar Harbor from its origins to the fire. It also offers intriguing curiosities, including insights on the upstairs-downstairs aspects of resort life. The book's captions are packed with fascinating information.

About the Author:

Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., is the Maine State Historian. He became interested in historic preservation at the age of 13, when Union Station in Portland, Maine, was torn down to make way for a strip mall. He holds degrees from Colby College and Boston University.
