Julia’s Postcards: A Historic Journey Through Greenville Junction

Greenville Junction in the early 20th century.

We invite you to join us on a journey through time as we explore the rich history of Greenville Junction, once hailed as the future boom town of Maine in the March 9, 1900 edition of the Bangor Daily News.

Our upcoming Jane’s Walk will weave together the historical tapestry of this area, focusing on the influential Crafts family—a cornerstone of the Moosehead Lake region during that era. Through the lens of vintage postcards, we’ll reimagine the past as if these missives were penned by Julia Craft, Arthur Craft’s daughter. Julia, a young teenager at the time, witnessed the unfolding changes firsthand.

Our mile-long walking journey will take us to both former and current landmarks of significance. We’ll visit the sites where the Moosehead Inn, Moosehead YMCA, Piscataquis Exchange, and the Bangor and Aroostook train depot once stood. We’ll also explore present-day sites such as the Canadian Pacific train depot, Steamboat Landing, and the Crafts residence.

Join us as we step back in time and walk in the footsteps of those who shaped the Moosehead Lake region’s history. We look forward to sharing this unique experience with you.


The route will follow Pritham Avenue in Greenville Jct. There are no sidewalks so we’ll be walking along the side of the road. For the most part the walk will be on level ground. Good walking shoes recommended.
