Abstract

A brief article on Castine in the late 1800s, which never had the cachet of Bar Harbor or Kennebunkport, but which eschewed flashiness. After Castine lost its status as one of New England's most prosperous shipping ports, its remote location and enduring local family fortunes saved the town's distinctive architecture from the predations of development.
