Aerial view of Bar Harbor, which was first named Town of Eden in 1796, then renamed Bar Harbor in 1918. In the background the mountains of Acadia National Park are visible (Cadillac Mountain is the nighest peak visible). George B. Dorr and Charles W. Eliot, and later John D. Rockefeller Jr. all worked to establish a National Park, which opened in 1916. The park named was changed to Lafayette National Park in 1919 and then Acadia National Park in 1929.
