Camden Set to Shop & Eat
"Area to recreation and relaxation"
The area from Rockland to Camden along Hwy 1 has sites to drop off and see on the ocean side. Rockland is a working town, and it takes a while to get through it on Hwy 1. The towns of Rockport and CAmden draw the tourists to stay and venture into the mountains, or stroll along the town streets. The harbors are very nice.
"Layout of CAmden town"
The town has B&B's and quanit Inns to stay. It has only a two block strip for shopping on Main Street, but it is busy. Thge harbor is vbery nice and the Megunticook River has a rapid swift flowing fall in the rear off Main St that goes to the harbor. It is well preserved.
"Old Time SEtting of Industry"
Founded in 1771, the town of only 5,000 people today had a legacy in sawmill activity. The demand in the 1800's allowed the town to expand into gristmills, shipbuilding and a number of ancillary trades. That gave them the opportunity to build fine architecture. IN early 1900's the town began to feature the mountians and water cruises for tourists. This continues today.
