Riassunto: Brooklin is a Downeast coastal town surrounded by Blue Hill Bay to the east, Jericho Bay to the south, and Eggemoggin Reach to the southwest. Its location makes the town a mecca for sailing, fishing, lobstering, boatbuilding, and summer tourism. From the first settlers on Naskeag Point, the sea has shaped Brooklin's history. Nineteenth-century archeological digs found relics of the ancient Red Paint People and Native Americans in Brooklin. In the early 1900s, Col. Adam Wesley Powell dug artifacts of these people, and later, the famous Norse coin was found here. In North Brooklin, the creatures in E.B. White's barn inspired the characters for Charlotte's Web. On Naskeag Point, a Revolutionary War battle was fought by the local residents. At Center Harbor, sardines and clam factories made Brooklin rich, and in Haven, Noah Tibbets started a summer colony of prominent residents. On Flye Point, another colony was founded on land deeded to the Flye family by the king of England. Boats were built at Allen's Cove, Herrick's Bay, Bridges Point, Benjamin River, and Center Harbor. With its numerous boatyards, the famous Wooden Boat School, and Wooden Boat magazine, Brooklin has been called the ìBoatbuilding Capital of the World.
L'autore: The Brooklin Keeping Society was founded in 2000 to preserve, exhibit, and research Brooklin's history. Local fishermen, boatbuilders, historians, town officials, writers, educators, and summer folk from all walks of life have contributed their oral histories and photographs to the completion of this volume.
