The Kennebec and Sheepscot Rivers of Maine, natural
boundaries for the Wiscasset region, provided the water highways for early explorers, traders, and
missionaries. By the early part of the seventeenth century, colonization by European settlers had begun. For over 360 years, the area has been home to shipbuilders, fishermen, farmers, and tradesmen. This marvelous photographic chronicle traces not only
the rich historical traditions of the area, but also the shared sense of life's unbroken continuity present in the towns of the Wiscasset region: Alna, Dresden, Westport Island, Wiscasset, and Woolwich. Vintage photographs profile a few of those who quietly inspired others through their efforts to make life better in the region, as well as those men and women of wealth and vision who provided the area with a legacy by their lifestyles and great homes. The book also features views of local taverns, courthouses, general stores, churches, and schools--all the foundations of a changing, vivacious, and growing community.
