Bay View Hotel, Islesboro, ca. 1890

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student.


The Bay View Hotel was built circa 1870 on Hewes Point, Islesboro's second summer community.

Similar to Ryder's Cove, Islesboro's first summer community, Hewes Point catered to middle-class families from the mainland.

These families came across Penobscot Bay from Bangor and surrounding communities, and stayed at the Bay View or built modest cottages by the water's edge.
