For our third book on stagecoach history, we have chosen the stage routes connecting Maine's three capitals, Boston, Portland and Augusta. Preceding stagecoach travel in the west by at least forty years, travel in the east started in the late 18th century and was in full swing until the railroads took over in the 1840s.
Subjects covered include an overview of why Maine's capital moved from Boston to Portland and finally to Augusta; the building of the stage roads; formation of the stage lines; taverns and inns along the way and personal accounts of travel and experiences on the stage routes. Over 100 black and white images coupled with twenty-two color photos provide a unique glimpse into Maine's past. See "Products."
