235 years of Camden Heritage Down by the OLD Mill Stream

235 years of Camden Heritage Down by the OLD Mill Stream

By Barbara Dyer

The Megunticook River has been an important part of Camden for hundreds of years. It has made the town successful by historically providing power for many industries as well as providing amazing recreational areas, waterfalls and dams along its 142 foot drop to the sea culminating into a spectacular pair of falls plunging into the ocean right beside Camden Harbor Park. The river and falls are still supporting the town by making Camden an amazing destination as  a unique place to live or visit.

Unfortunately this local treasure may soon be in peril!
