The Oxford Hills (Maine)
Greenwood, Norway, Oxford, Paris,
West Paris, and Woodstock
Images of America Series

by Diane and Jack Barnes

Copyright 1995, Arcadia Publishing
144 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
The Oxford Hills have always been unique in the history of Maine. They were not settled until after the French and Indian War of 1763, and their isolation allowed the communities to develop distinct identities apart from external influences. The arrival of the railroad connected that area to Portland and Boston, sparking the development of a thriving wood products industry to complement the region's agricultural economy. As transportation developed, so did the outside world's awareness of the pristine natural beauty of the Oxford Hills and the resulting influx of tourists and sportsmen brought further growth and diversity to that area.

Despite the many changes that have transpired since the sound of the first axe resounded through the valley of the Little Androscoggin River, the Oxford Hills remain one of the most rugged, independent, and beautiful regions in all of Maine.

Diane and Jack Barnes have delved into many archival and private collections to create this wonderful tribute - a tribute to the people who worked and played in the Oxford Hills over the past century of change, but also to the photographers who froze time with their lens so that we could better understand what came before us. For those lucky enough to remember, this journey around the Oxford Hills will be a delightful trip down memory lane; for others, it will be a fascinating voyage of discovery.
