Buxton sits along the eastern side of the Saco River in northern York County. The Saco was instrumental in the town’s establishment, as early settlers moved up the river from the towns of Biddeford and Saco and settled on the river’s bank at Salmon Falls. Buxton’s inhabitants powered their mills from the river and other local tributaries, and the town’s early villages were located near these mills. Buxton presents vintage postcards of the riverside villages of Salmon Falls, Union Falls, Bar Mills, West Buxton, and Bonny Eagle, along with inland centers, including Groveville, Buxton Center, Lower Corner, Duck Pond, and other hamlets. Postcard images of Buxton from the year 1895 forward provide valuable insight into the life and times of the citizens of this onetime industrial center. Paperback: 128 pages
