North Bath, Maine, is set on a beautiful peninsula surrounded by the Androscoggin and Kennebec rivers with Merrymeeting Bay at the headland. This glorious peninsula is rich not only in its pristine beauty but also in its history. In The Road to Down Street, native Nancy Dearborn Lovetere meticulously researched the very beginnings of her beloved hometown, from its seventeenth-century roots to its evolution as a thriving rural community, with farms, shipyards, mills, tanneries, blacksmith shops, lively Yankee characters, and more. Lovetere brings this historic Maine community to life with details and anecdotes that will delight not only locals, but also those who appreciate the wide-ranging magnificence of Maine's history.
