Rusticating in Acadia

Artists and journalists, including painters of the Hudson River School, were drawn to Mt. Desert Island, Maine in the mid 19th century.  Undaunted by the simple food and accommodations offered to them by their island hosts, these outsiders became known as “the rusticators.”  Inspired by the beautiful scenery and relaxed pace of life, many returned year after year drawing even more visitors with their paintings and their tales.  I attended college in Bar Harbor and know the beauty that animates the island—in all four seasons.
