From Colonial times to the present, the Town of Wiscasset has played an important part in Maine's history. Here for the first time is a timeless collection of stories, told with warmth and wit, about the Shire Town of Lincoln County. Mr. Di Vece takes the reader on a journey through the town's colorful past, introducing people, places, and events in danger of being forgotten and lost forever to today's generation. There's a story of the whistle-stop visit by President Ulysses S. Grant, and another about a 19th century newspaper started by a pair of teenage publishers. Read about Luther Little, naval hero of the Revolutionary War and namesake of a 4-masted schooner left abandoned at the Wiscasset waterfront. Legends of lost treasure, witches, and magical springs are recounted, along with the story of a Wiscasseter who faithfully kept a daily journal for over 50 years. Illustrated with many rare photographs, this book is a must for anyone who's ever visited and fell in love with "Maine's Prettiest Village.
