Passengers waiting to board the steamboat Golden Rod.
Lime Kiln Wharf, Islesboro's first steamboat wharf, was built in Pripet (northern end of the island) in 1847. Steamboats served as the islanders' primary source of transportation to and from the island until ferry transportation was introduced in 1937. Lime Kiln Wharf was abandoned after World War II.
