This shows Winter Harbor, Maine in
the distance as viewed from Frazer Point near the entrance to the Schoodic
Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. Frazer Point provides
parking, a picnic area, public toilets, and a 40-foot pier with a 20'
x 20' floating dock for public use.
For thousands of years, this was the location of an Indian summer
campsite. It is named after African-American Thomas Frazer, the area's
first non-Indian settler. In the Gouldsboro census
of 1790, Thomas is listed as being settled here where he established
and operated a Salt Works company to sell salt to passing ships. At
that time, Frazer Point and the rest of Winter Harbor were part of
the municipality of Gouldsboro.
