This hand drawn map shows the areas called "Asticou", which abuts the junction of Route 198 and Route 3 in Northeast Harbor. The map was created by Charles K. Savage to show the area that he had saved from being purchased by the telephone company for a small utility building.
This map is an example of the type of documents and visual aids that Savage developed when he was explaining the visual impact that certain changes in the community would have on the beauty and intent of the land. Savage was successful in convincing the telephone company to relocate their utility station across Route 198 on land that was made available to them through the generosity of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
