The Northeast Harbor Swim Club. In 1897, Bishop Doane along with Samuel Eliot and James Terry Gardiner established the Village Improvement Society “to make Northeast Harbor a desirable summer place.” They furthered and helped in the direction of the swimming pool, the golf course, and the tennis club. The Village Improvement Society was primarily managed by summer people, but a few local residents were on the board of directors though not invited to join in on the activities.
