"AVOID THE PORTAGE AROUND THE DAM!"

 

Well before the early 1800’s local citizens and tourists began enjoying the beauty of the Saco River. The river actually starts on Mount Washington, flowing into Saco Lake in Crawford Notch in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, then travels over varied terrain of farm land and forests, makes its way to Fryeburg, Maine and traverses through six hydro-power stations as it runs all the way to Saco, Maine and eventually meets the Atlantic Ocean in the Saco Bay.

 

This watercolor was painted in 1867 by Benjamin Champney, famed White Mountain Artist. It is called “On the Saco”.
