BAR HARBOR — Steve Zirnkilton will narrate the Bar Harbor Historical Society’s film “The Fire of ’47,” which will premiere later this summer. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the fire that forever changed the face of Bar Harbor.

“The Fire of ’47,” in production now, will include several eye-witness accounts of the fire as several community members have talked with Director Peter Logue about their memories of that fateful time.

“The Fire of ’47” also will look at how the event changed Bar Harbor and set the community on the path to where it is today. Before and after images will be shown to better understand the grandeur and scale of the lost hotels and homes and see what now stands in their place.
