For example, see the unusual Bates Mill under construction and look at a Bates bedspread up close to see how it was created. See how paper production from wood pulp expanded in Mechanic Falls, Livermore, and Livermore Falls.

It includes fascinating details about artifacts, events, landmarks, and people from each town and city in the Androscoggin County.
