Description of City/Town
Lubec has a large and admirable harbor, of sufficient depth for the largest vessels, and is never obstructed by ice, is easy of access, and well protected from rough seas by points and islands. The principal place of business is at the end of the point of land jutting into and dividing the harbor, — the situation being very beautiful….Lubec has two ship-yards, three boat-builders, three sail-makers, and the other small manufactures common to villages….The principal business of the inhabitants is agriculture and fisheries.
