Description of City/Town
Located on both sides of the Narraguagus River, Cherryfield became the site of many water-powered industries, including a grist mill, a planing mill, a sash, door and blind factory, and several sawmills. These sawmills annually produced $400,000 in lumber and $30,000 worth of shingles. Lumber and shingles were transported by river on rafts to Milbridge, where they were shipped to various ports.
