Acadia National Park

Long before Europeans arrived, Wabanaki people hunted, fished, gathered berries, and harvested clams on what we now call Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. For generations, Wabanaki craftspeople sold handmade ash and sweet-grass baskets to wealthy tourists and guided summer residents in birch bark canoes around Frenchman Bay. As their ancestors did for thousands of years, Wabanaki people today continue their unique and enduring relationship with this land through tribal gatherings and cultural traditions.Visit the original Abbe Museum, up the paved path, to see Wabanaki objects from 12,000 years ago to today. Dr. Robert Abbe (above) who summered in Bar Harbor, began the collection with stone tools he saw in a store window. He sketched these drawings of artifacts and his concept of the museum, which opened in 1928 thanks to support from his close friend George B. Dorr.
