More About Around Blue Hill and Ellsworth by Richard R. Shaw
 
 
 
Overview
Few regions in New England can equal the scenic beauty and rich history of the Blue Hill and Ellsworth region. Situated in Hancock County, in Maine's Down East, the area was settled in the 1760s by hearty settlers harvesting blueberry barrens and fishing the coastal waters. In the 19th century, summer tourists began arriving, and they built elaborate summer estates along Parker Point and Hancock Point. The vintage postcards in this book show scenes of towns around Blue Hill and Ellsworth, such as Franklin, Sullivan, Sorrento, and Lamoine, as well as rare views of the 1933 Ellsworth fire and 1923 flood, Blue Hill Fair, and George Stevens Academy.
