Maine captures two worlds within its borders: the world of work and the world of leisure. Mainers live and work through the long, cold winters, short springs, easy summers, and brilliant falls. Vacationers delight in the rocky coastline, summer camps, mountain hikes, pristine wilderness, and wildlife views. The rigors of living in Maine throughout the year have created a spirit of endurance in its citizens.

Historic Photos of Maine captures this spirit of inventiveness, work, recreation, and integrity that are hallmarks of the state through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the era of the early days of steam travel to its role as a beloved vacation destination, Historic Photos of Maine follows life, government, education, and events throughout the state’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of hundreds of historic photographs.

Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique community.

West Forks, ME

West Forks, Maine

The West Forks in Maine is where the Dead River and the Kennebec River meet, and this intersection of two powerful rivers has created one of the best areas for whitewater rafting in the region. Situated along the Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway, The West Forks is also in the heart of Maine’s premiere snowmobiling country and provides easy access to Maine’s interconnected trail system (ITS), which has hundreds of miles of well-marked trails through the wilderness, perfect for wildlife watching and enjoying the gorgeous scenery.
