April, 2020 -- JUST RELEASED -- A New History of Early Gouldsboro: FOUNDERS AND FOLLOWERS by Rev. Charles A. Joy

Founders and Followers: Movers and Shakers Who Built Gouldsboro on the Eastern Frontier, by long-time GHS speaker, the Reverend Charles A. Joy, is the story of newly founded Gouldsboro, a frontier town brought to life through vivid portraits of the people who created a new settlement on the Peninsula. This dramatic tale is peopled with flesh and blood actors whose plans, ambitions, and struggles for survival made it possible for this infant town to live through two wars and near-starvation to reach ultimate success as a vital part of the new state of Maine.
