Exhibit

John Young Merrill and son, Edwin Kimball Merrill, Leeds, 1860

John Y. Merrill: Leeds Farmer, Entrepreneur, & More

John Y. Merrill of Leeds (1823-1898) made terse entries in diaries he kept for 11 years. His few words still provide a glimpse into the life of a mid 18th century farmer, who also made shoes, quarried stone, moved barns, made healing salves -- and was active in civic affairs.

Exhibits cover Northeast Harbor, the Granite industry, Bar Harbor’s Building of Arts, the Green Mountain Railway, the Bryants and the Rockefellers, and steamboats.

Site

Grist and saw mills on the Upper Falls, Rumford, ca. 1895

Western Maine Foothills Region

Eleven communities comprise the Western Foothills Region, all interconnected yet each with its own unique, rich history. This site is the beginning of the towns sharing their stories with the world, each other, and the next generation. Working closely with local schools, six historical societies came together to help the next generation understand the heritage of their area. We invite you to explore our exhibits that celebrate the individuals and events that formed our communities.
