Description

This postcard shows the settlement of Guinea, located mid-island. The Pendleton School is the building on the left located on Main Road near County Road. The first Islesboro Free Library was located on the second floor. The small white building on the right was the second home of the library.

Settlements on Islesboro such as Guinea were common in the days before cars. These settlements had to be self-sufficient because mobility was limited. In most cases, the settlements had their own stores, churches, schools, post offices and wharves.
