Abstract

"North by East" piece on Jameson Tavern in Freeport, formerly the Codman Tavern, which according to legend, is the building where in 1819, Maine's founding fathers signed the papers separating Maine from Massachusetts. No such incident took place, but the Daughters of the American Revolution affixed a plaque to the property in 1914 commemorating the imaginary signing ceremony. Freeport actually voted against the separation five times.
