Description

Charles K. Savage created the Asticou Azalea Gardens at Northeast Harbor in 1956-1957. A lifelong resident of Northeast Harbor, Savage was owner and general manager of the Asticou Inn, which is across the street from the gardens.

The azaleas and rhododendrons seen in the photo came Reef Point, the Bar Harbor estate of Beatrix Farrand, a noted landscape architect.
