A visit to Acadia National Park's Islesford Historical Museum tells the story of the Cranberry
Isles from 1769, when the first recorded European settler arrived, to 1927 when the brick museum building was erected. Why would the National Park Service, charged with preserving the history of the nation, be interested in a local collection? Why would students, studying national history, be interested in visiting a museum of the people of five little islands? Because what happened here.
