More About Kittery to Bar Harbor by Erika J. Waters
 
 
 
Overview
Maine s more than 3,000 miles of rocky coastline, picturesque islands, sandy beaches, iconic lighthouses, and quintessential New England harbors have lured visitors since the middle of the 19th century. Steamships first transported sportsmen and rusticators along the coast. Soon summer colonies formed, and art schools flourished. Expanding train travel led to the development of seaside resorts with grand hotels, while America s wealthiest families built opulent summer cottages in exclusive enclaves. Yachts became common sights along the coast and cruising grew in popularity. With the 20th century came the automobile and the development of the highway system, including Route 1, which encouraged road trips. The history of touring the Maine coast between 1860 and 1960 offers fascinating insight into the history of Maine, tourism, and America itself."
