Description

The photographer appeared to be atop a load of hay when he took this picture in the middle of Main Street. Below the three-bay shed on the left were the Weeks & Co. store, Solomon Hopkins' house, and Fred Coombs blacksmith shop (dark building) across the Sheepscot River.

Below the Achorn complex on the right was a dark-colored building sometimes called the dry shed which was part of the sawmill. The light-colored area on the dry shed showed the outline of the former grist mill as shown by the lack of shingles. The date of the demise of the grist mill was sometime after 1906.
