Bar Harbor, Maine
—The Museum in the Streets —The Village Green was originally the site of the 350-room Grand Hotel. Many stories have been told about the immature Boston boys and the cultured Philadelphia girls who socialized around the "fish pond" at the nearby Rodick House. The Hotel was purchased by the town and demolished in 1899, making room for the park designed by noted landscape architect Beatrix Farrand. The first of many concerts that continue to this day was held July 21, 1899. Another feature of interest is the exquisite Italian 17th century bronze fountain from Florence, Italy, donated by Philip Livingston in memory of his wife Julia. On the Main Street side of the park is the town clock visible in this picture which was donated in 1892 by Mrs. William Tucker and her two sons of Boston.
