Bath's Front Street Honored
The city of Bath was recently recognized for its outstanding work for emphasizing historic preservation while revitalizing Front Street. The National Trust for Historic Preservation gives out the award every year to five communities. Bath is only the fifth from New England to be honored in the award's sixteen-year history.
In May 2010, Down East took a look at the impressive revitalization efforts going on in Bath. Joshua Moore profiled the city's past and present, interviewed a downtown small business owner, geeked out on boats at the Maine Maritime Museum, and took a look at the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust that borders the city.
