Nestled on the shores of the Androscoggin, Lewiston and Auburn began as small mill settlements by harnessing the river's power. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the towns enjoyed their lush northern scenery and endured harsh winters. They evolved into bustling communities, where The Grange remained active and events like dancing at Lewiston City Hall and Christmas shopping at B. Peck Department Store became local favorites. Author David A. Sargent has carefully chronicled the history of this picturesque region in his River Views columns, and presents this collection as a celebration of this unique community and the people who compose it. From the early industrial days to the modern splendor of the balloon festival, Lewiston and Auburn on the Mighty Androscoggin documents it all. David A. Sargent is a native of Auburn. His columns, "River Views," have appeared twice monthly in the Lewiston Sun Journal since 2005. Paperback 128 pages
