Country Store Museum to open for season

TREMONT — The Bass Harbor Country Store Museum will open for the season on Saturday, June 25, from 1-4 p.m.

Laurie Schreiber, Bass Harbor author, will be there from 2-4 p.m. to sign her recently published book “Boatbuilding on Mount Desert Island.” Books will be available for purchase. Schreiber’s book grew out of her 25 years of covering the boatbuilding industry on Mount Desert Island, first as a reporter for the Bar Harbor Times and later as a freelance writer.

In addition to historical information about boatbuilding on MDI, her book provides fascinating glimpses into boatbuilding families, including Chester Clement, Henry Hinckley, Bunker and Ellis, Sim Davis, Ralph Stanley and the Rich families of Tremont.
