Maine's Saco and Little Ossipee Rivers have been the lifeblood of the towns of Buxton, Hollis, and Limington for over 150 years. This delightful collection of over 200 black-and-white images vividly illustrates the two rivers' influence on these communities and details the lives and times of area residents.
Once known as an integral part of Maine's logging industry, Buxton, Hollis, and Limington and the rivers along which they reside were sources of electricity and economic prosperity for the surrounding region and the state.
Pictured here are the residents and founders who built and established these towns, as well as local celebrities such as author Kate Douglas Wiggin. In this, the first pictorial history of the region, the solid foundations on which Buxton, Hollis, and Limington are based emerge in the faces, buildings, and stories captured in these photographs.
