View of Cherryfield, Washington County, Maine, 1896, Published by Geo. E. Norris.

Cherryfield, Maine is proud of its title “The Blueberry Capitol of the World” and has an historic district that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the fine examples of 18th century architecture that are on the register are referenced on this map.

The following brief article appeared in an August 5th, 1892 issue of “The Bangor Daily Whig and Courier”:

 “The Austin family of Cherry field is noted for its telegraphers. There were three brothers and two sisters, all of whom were experts. The brothers are dead. The elder sister, who, it is said, was the first lady operator in the eastern part of the state, left the key many years ago, and her younger sister, Mrs. J. H. Brimmer, fills the position in the Western Union office at Ellsworth. The elder brother, M. P. Austin, for many years manger of the Portland office, was classed as one of the best operators on the line. His son Allen W. Austin, who receives press messages in the Western Union office at Boston, during the National Democratic convention at Chicago, was sent there to work a private wire to Gray Gables, and so well did he perform the duty that Mr. Cleveland has since given him a liberal present in cash.”
