A second wave of settlers, wealthy city dwellers from Boston and New York, came to Maine’s coast in the mid- to late 19th century seeking respite from the summer heat and city congestion. They built shingled estates (which they coyly called “cottages”) with views of the Atlantic. At the beginning of the 20th century, aided by trolleys and buses, wealthy rusticators were followed by the emerging middle class, who built bungalows near the shore and congregated at oceanside boarding houses to splash in the waves.
