Description


In the summer of 1643, John Sanders was granted land bordering the Mousam River in Kennebunk. From this early grant to the present, many generations have called Kennebunk home. Through nearly two hundred vintage photographs, Kennebunk portrays life in this charming village from 1850 to 1940. From the architecture of its downtown neighborhoods to scenes of the rural countryside, the images in this book provide a window on Kennebunk's past. They also capture the people who made up the fabric of this community, from early sea captains to hardworking farmers.
Among them are immigrant Sam Tvedt, an eccentric preacher who sported shoulder-length hair and a long flowing coat while shouting sermons from beside the town pump; and Colby Jack Coombs, the famous World Series pitcher, shown spending time with his family on their Alewive farm.
