The Winthrop lakes region is a richly historical area of great natural beauty. Winthrop chronicles the town's life since the mid-1800s with views of many resort hotels and camps on the Maranacook, Annabessacook, and Cobossecontee Lakes, still fondly remembered by summer rusticators. Also included are vintage photographs of the town's rapidly evolving Main Street and village, recently the focus of modernization efforts that resulted in the restoration of the Penniman Block.
