Welcome poster, Fryeburg, 1937

Contributed by Fryeburg Historical Society


In the late 1930s, Fryeburg businessmen built a ski tow on Jockey Cap mountain in Fryeburg.

The Winter Sports Committee with the Kiwanis Club spearheaded an initiative to encourage tourists to visit the area.

A ski train brought skiers from Portland and local area businesses catered to these snow sports enthusiasts. One of the initiatives was to post these hand-made posters in windows.
