Lewiston and Auburn emerged as early settlers constructed a wide variety of mills to harness the river's power. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the townspeople enjoyed lush rthern summers and endured harsh winters. As the Maine communities flourished, locals packed the Grange halls, danced at Lewiston City Hall and went Christmas shopping at B. Peck Department Store. Author David A. Sargent has carefully chronicled the history of this picturesque region in his River Views columns and presents this collection as a celebration of this place and its people. From the early industrial days to the modern splendor of the balloon festival, Remembering Lewiston-Auburn on the Mighty Androscoggin documents it all.
