Eugenia Powers with deer, Schoodic, ca. 1900

Contributed by Norcross Heritage Trust

Description

Eugenia Powers, at far right, and an unidentified companion, stand next to eight deer hanging at Schoodic, a 200 acre farm located on the south side of the confluence of Schoodic Stream and the West Branch of the Penobscot River.

The Fowler family owned Schoodic farm, which was later purchased by Charles & Eugenia Powers. The construction of Dolby Dam in conjunction with the paper mill at East Millinocket in 1906 flooded the farm, which is now submerged under the water of Dolby Pond.
