Overview
The Moosehead Lake region has long been a place where travelers go to escape. In the first half of the twentieth century, the region became a mecca for hunters and fishermen, as well as for travelers looking for rest and relaxation at popular resorts such as the Mount Kineo House. The Moosehead Lake Region: 1900-1950 uses vintage photographs to tell the story of this Maine retreat. The images depict visitors and residents of Greenville, Shirley, Rockwood, Beaver Cove, and Kokadjo; the lumbering era in the North Woods; and the locomotives whose whistles pierced the wilderness.
