Description

Excerpt from Bangor, Maine: Its Summer Attractions and Industrial Advantages; Issued by the Bangor Board of Trade, 1906 The pioneer Buswell was not, however, the first White man to visit or note the advantages of settlement at the confluence of the Kenduskeag and the Penobscot Rivers. As early as 1605 the French had visited this locality, and in 1613 the Jesuits had contemplated planting a mission here, but finally determined on Mount Desert. About 1670 Baron De Castine of Canada came into the region, gained great influence with the Tarratine Indians by means of marriage with the daughter of Chief Modockawando and estab lished a trading place where now stands the historic town of Cas tine. As a consequence for almost a century before the first settlement on Bangor's present site, the Penobscot River was a highway of communication between Canada and the French trad ing posts established in the Penobscot region. And it was not till the fall of Quebec and the final crushing of French power in America in 1759 that this region became inviting to settlers from England or colonies to the southward.
