Love of local history draws crowds to new Facebook group

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A new Facebook page has triggered an avalanche of local enthusiasm, growing from zero to 2,500 members in only one month. Washington County, Maine-A Look Into the Past brings together the stories of Downeast families across the county, across the world, and across the centuries, too.

Site founder Michael Scott says he started the page as a place for people to share their family’s Downeast history, and as a result, he’s learning more about his history, too.
