The of Lewiston and Auburn, Maine the side of native American settlement and subsequent “Yankee” farming villages, are a populated by a wide variety of races and cultures. These cities grew steadily with the arrival of French-Canadian and other immigrants in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and more recently have welcomed Somalians and others from Africa. Hidden in plain view amid this diversity is the presence of the Twin Cities’ first large wave of immigrants, the Irish. While the Irish of Lewiston and Auburn today live quietly within the fabric of the community, the buildings of their forefathers loudly proclaim the influence of this large ethnic group on the life and development of these cities. John Henderson documents and celebrates the presence of the Irish in Maine’s second largest urban center. Paperback 68 pages
