This view of Boothbay Harbor highlights the working waterfront and the town’s iconic footbridge. Erected in 1901, the footbridge was one of many turn-of-the-century initiatives to build upon the vitality of Boothbay Harbor’s economy. It greatly reduced travel time between the east and west sides of the harbor. The working waterfront’s success greatly influenced the decision to separate from the town of Boothbay in 1889 and continues to be one of the driving forces in Maine’s maritime economy.
