Chief Warumbee sold Ten Miles Falls in 1678, and a century later, the first Lisbon settlement was established along the Androscoggin River. The water's mammoth power generated thousands of jobs and shaped a way of life for Lisbon's earliest citizens. Near beautiful cascading waterfalls, European immigrants found a magnificent place to share hard work, old-world customs, family traditions, and pride in their new home. Lisbon's history is as intricately woven as its fine Worumbo cloth. The town has suffered ravaging floods and fires, yet it has triumphed with the indomitable spirit of the community. In this volume, vivid photographs tell fascinating stories and carefully preserve the past for future generations.
