A Part of the Main
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 0:26:01

As Europeans began to look seriously towards Maine as a desirable economic region, there were many debates about who owned or controlled the varied and plentiful natural resources, especially timber. In the mid-1800’s, the timber harvest from the communities in the far north woods traveled via the river communities to the prosperous coast where the wealth of natural resources set sail for the world beyond. Today, these distinct regions remain intact, each with a different story to tell about how history has played itself out since that time.

Rolling back the frontier
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 0:26:45

In the 1600s, European settlers left everything they knew to take advantage of Maine’s abundant resources. Despite back-breaking work, a harsh climate, and cultural clashes, they successfully carved out a new life for themselves. But by the end of the century, most of them would leave Maine in fear and live for years as war refugees.
