History of Raymond and Casco Told Through Photographs
Local authors team up on new book
The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Raymond and Casco from local authors Martha Watkins Glassford and Pamela Watkins Grant. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images primarily from the Raymond-Casco Historical Society’s archives, illustrating the history of these towns and the struggles and triumphs of their early residents.
Early residents in Raymond and Casco pioneered the land, building roads and carving a life out of the wilderness. In the late 1800s, local manufacturers harvested and sold ice blocks. Later residents built yachts and established radio communications. Local poets and authors like Martin Dibner and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote of characters and folklore.
The many vintage photographs in Raymond and Casco depict hardworking men and women in their corn shops, blacksmith shops, sawmills, schools, and places of worship, taking readers back in time to a way of life that is since long gone.
