Description - Guilford and Sangerville by Sieferd Schultz

Guilford and Sangerville typify hundreds of small towns scattered across Maine, and this volume reveals the two towns rich visual history. Each a beautiful community, and nearly self-sufficient until recently, they border each other with the beautiful Piscataquis River running between. Guilford sits on the north with Sangerville on the south. From the dawn of the Industrial Revolution to the advent of electricity, almost every river in the state spawned dozens of towns as waterpower was harnessed for a variety of mills. Railroads and the subsequent highways provided the needed transportation for importing raw materials and exporting finished goods. Rivers proved to be a blessing and a curse when severe floods washed away many businesses and homes, but the area remained vibrant. While Guilford and Sangerville are quieter now, they still boast strong and proud communities."
