History of Pemaquid Point and Surrounding Areas

This page contains some historical documents and data that deal with the Pemaquid Point area. This page will be changed from time to time to feature new material that becomes available. If you have something that you think should be featured here, please let us know by email (see "About" page for email addresses). We are always happy to receive new material and will make every reasonable effort to get your material on line here. Help us make the history page fun and educational by getting your story, old photo, new photo of an old object, photo of an old letter or whatever on line here.

Also, we have in our possession most of the 20th century records, (dating back to the 1930s) of the Association and some old local newspapers. We have a committee looking into the feasibility of digitizing these records to make them available to others. After the digitization, the originals will be loaned to the Bristol Library.
