Poland Spring was one of the most popular resorts in Maine during the glory days of the Gilded Age.
Its history begins earlier, however.
The family of Jabez and Molly Ricker first came to the area in 1794 and began taking in travelers soon thereafter at what became known as the Wentworth Ricker Inn.
