New Local History Books





We just received some excellent additions to our local history collection. Many of you will already be aware of the books published by William Trasker of Monkey Publishing.

The Pioneer Homes of Presque Isle, Caribou, Washburn, and Houlton are books you really must stop in to look through. Many of these homes are still standing and can be easily identified. It would be great fun to check out the book and then drive around the town locating the various homes.

To see images from these books and to read a description of the contents, visit Monkey Publishing and click on the book images for details.

Gail,

These are wonderful books and, as you said, it is fun to drive around and find the houses. Good job has been done with the history of each one and of the town.
