Overview
For over two centuries, many a helmsman felt a surge of deliverance upon first spotting the Quoddy Lighthouse, guardian of the easternmost point of the United States. During the foggy summer months, residents of Lubec take comfort in the symphony of tolling bells and crashing surf along the rocky Maine coast, where Native Americans once hunted seals and generations of fishermen tugged their boats ashore. In this collection of articles, historian Ronald Pesha revives the events and people of Lubec's past, uncovering stories such as the eighteenth-century naval hero and founder of the U.S. Coast Guard, Hopley Yeaton, and the nineteenth-century Lubec signature quilt. From the Quoddy Belle's California gold mine expedition to the colorful history of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Cat Food house, these tales from Lubec history will delight all readers.
