Selected Historical Images (click to enlarge)
Photographs Courtesy of Tim Harrison,
Proprietor of Harrison's Pierce Pond Camps

 
Pierce Pond Stream Camps were built by Ralph Sterling, then owner of the Sterling Hotel at Caratunk, in 1934. They were sold to Bud and Dori Williams in 1975 and then in 1986 to Tim Harrison, who runs them now and kindly shared these photos. For an excellent history of sporting camps in the area see Gary Cobb and Alfred H. Fenton's 1992 book The History of Pierce Pond.
