Did You Know?

In 1878, Teddy Roosevelt visited Island Falls and met William Sewall.  Bill, who was an avid hunter and woodsman, took young Teddy on many outdoor adventures on and around the Mattawamkeag Lakes.  Teddy formed a lasting kinship with Mr. Sewall and with the surrounding lakes area.  This inspired our 26th president to become the nation's "Conservationalist President".
