Hello from Bar Harbor, Maine. I stumbled upon this site and fell in love with it. The furthest I have ever traveled outside of Maine is to Boston, so you can tell I'm no world traveler. But then again, I live by one of the entrances to Acadia national Park, so I only hae to walk into the park to experience all the beauty nature has to offer. Below is a link to a video I did titled SCENES FROM BAR HARBOR - check it out. I soon will be doing some videos of inside the park as well.

Hi JR, welcome to the forums. I just went to Bar Harbor a few months ago, it was cold, but I thought it was beautiful.

What a nice little New England town ! smile.gif
It looks like a very old village (small cobblestoned streets, old colonial houses), when was Bar Harbor founded ?

Well, first of all, I wish we did have cobblestone streets, it would be even more senic then it is. The first people settled here in town in 1763 and it was incorporated in 1796. The town's name was originally called Eden. There was THE GREAT FIRE in 1947 that raged for 10 days ad burned more than 17,000 acrea in Bar Harbor, including 8,000 acres in Acadia National Park. Many of the grand homes that famous people and movie stars had here burned in that fire, and many of those people never returned to rebuild. So the town renamed itself and reinvented itself into what it is today.
