Charles K. Savage Memorial, Thuya Garden, Northeast Harbor, 2012


This is a photograph of the northeast corner of the Thuya Garden where there is a memorial plaque and planted area in memory of Charles K. Savage. Savage designed the Thuya Garden and was the sole trustee of the Asticou Terraces Trust from 1930 to 1964. Savage's work and longevity as trustee were significant in the history and shaping of this public property after it was given to the town of Mount Desert by early Mount Desert Island rusticator and philanthropist Joseph Henry Curtis.
