In pencil at the bottom of the painting is the caption, "Settlers starting a home in 180-" [the final number of the date is cut off.] The description accompanying the illustration in the Centennial Program notes that "The settlement of Aroostook began in 1839." The county was organized in that year, but the story of white settlement on Wabanaki tribal lands is, of course, much longer and more complicated than that.
