Welcome to the Digital Archive!

The Southwest Harbor Public Library Digital Archive contains nearly 12,000 historic photographs, documents, maps, and research articles given to and shared with the library since about 1900. The Archive illustrates the way people, places, businesses, vessels, structures, organizations, and events relate to one another and tells the story of how islanders and “people from away” lived on and visited Mount Desert Island, Maine, in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries.
