A Place Apart
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:27:01

Maine is a place apart from the mainstream of American society. Beginning early in Maine’s history, settlers, merchants, visitors, artists, and writers brought images of Maine to the rest of the world that shaped the State's economy, identity, and heritage. The history behind the image of Maine remains a vital part of how we and those from away view Maine today.

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.
