Description

In the 1700s and early 1800s, Biddeford was a small, prosperous village dependent on fishing, lumbering, shipbuilding, and merchant mills for its wealth. In 1830, New England's industrial revolution brought massive investment and development to the town. The Saco Water Power Company was developed, two large textile companies were established, and six hundred buildings and thirty-six streets were constructed between 1829 and 1849. Biddeford quickly became the most ethnically and culturally diverse city in Maine. The city thrived for more than one hundred years, but the Great Depression brought hard times to Biddeford. Through images, Biddeford tells the compelling story of this remarkable city.
