Abstract

Article on the Schoodic peninsula, the only mainland section of Acadia National Park. An hour from Ellsworth, Schoodic encompasses 2,000 acres of pebble beaches, granite boulders and Schoodic Head, a 440-foot-high promontory. Bill Widener, National Park Service resident ranger, notes that the area is not commercialized or overrun like the main part of the park on Mount Desert Island. Through the efforts of George Dorr, Schoodic became a part of Acadia National Park in 1929.
