Orr’s Island Road Work – Orr’s Island ME

Description

Orr’s Island is an island in Casco Bay and the Gulf of Maine. The island is within the town of Harpswell, Maine, U.S., and forms an archipelago with Sebascodegan Island (also known as Great Island) to its north and Bailey Island (reached by the Bailey Island (or Cribstone) Bridge) to its south.

From a Harpswell Historical Society timeline:

1936 “At a special town meeting, $2500.00 was appropriated to continue the road work of the W.P.A. project on the island.”

1937 “15 men have been added to the W.P.A. project reconstructing the road on the northern end of Orr’s Island.”
