Description of City/Town

Incorporated in 1789, Blue Hill was known in the nineteenth century for lumbering, shipbuilding, quarrying, and mining. In the 1880s and 90s this picturesque coastal town became a popular summer resort, resulting in the construction of the Blue Hill Inn and many summer cottages.
