The Maine State Building was the domain of Frank Carlos Griffith as well as Nettie Ricker, both shown in the photo.

The tandem organized the art exhibits and co-edited for several years the resort newspaper, The Hill-Top.

Another small-town Maine country boy who had found success in the big city, Griffith was for most of the year a theatrical agent.

For over three decades, he faithfully returned to Poland Spring during the summertime to inform patrons through newspapers and books and inspire them with natural history and art displays.
