Castine: One of America's Earliest Settlements" is the opening for Castine's entry in the book One Hundred & One Beautiful Small Coastal Towns of America" by Stephen Brewer. Published by Rizzoli, the book visits small towns from coast to coast including our hometown of Castine, Maine.
From the book:
"This proud old town on the Blue Hill Peninsula near the wide mouth of the Penobscot River, settled by French traders in 1613, is one of America's earliest settlements and accepts this fact with quiet pride."
"The Pentagoet Inn began receiving guests in the 1890's and the large porch just above Main Street is still one of the vantage points in town."
