They Came By Sea
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:28:01

Europeans arrived here by sea, attracted by the region's phenomenal fisheries and the natural resources visible on the coast. At first, they weren't interested in establishing permanent settlements but, as an appreciation for the economic value of Maine's natural resources grew, colonial settlement began. Today, Maine continues to rely on the economic advantages available through the natural resources of the coast.
