Abstract

In the 1920s and '30s, Maine's lakes were among the state's star attractions. Three of the state's largest hotels--the Poland Spring House, the Mount Kineo House, and the Samoset--were owned by Hiram Ricker and his family. Thus they built a unified image of interior Maine and its hunting, fishing, and swimming opportunities. With examples of colorful tourist literature of the era.
