Abstract

Three-part article describing the "real Kennebunkport." Part one looks at the village as a portrait of colonial America, with its white-steepled churches and white clapboard houses, and describes the town's maritime and shipbuilding heritage. Between 1800 and 1880 nearly 650 ships were built on the Kennebunk River. Part two celebrates Kennebunkport as a summer colony, mentioning turn-of-the-century oceanside "cottages," and the 1914 Colony Hotel. Part three celebrates Kennebunkport as a beach resort, with descriptions of Gooch's Beach (though it's technically located in the town of Kennebunk), and Goose Rocks Beach, with its "singing sands."
