View of Perry, ca. 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


Taken from a hill on the South Meadow Road, this photo of the village section of Perry was taken before U.S. Route 1 was built.

In the foreground, the Maine Central Railroad tracks run from left to right. The old Perry Post Office is at the left, and the old Perry Farmers Union and a private home are at the left.

Between the two, obscured by trees, was a bridge leading to the Shore Road. In the background is the former Methodist Church on the Shore Road, later J.T. Gove and Sons Store (destroyed by fire in the 1930s) and beyond that the steeple of the Perry Congregational Church, which was still standing in 2013.
