<font color=cornflowerblue>Where I was born and lived my first 18 years. I am continuing to work on this page. The photo is of Owls Head Lighthouse.<p>"Owl's Head ushers at once upon a scene almost too beautiful to profane with speech when we are looking at it, impossible to find language to do it justice when memory would summon it before us again."
-- Samuel Adams Drake, The Pine Tree Coast, 1891.<p>Nobody is quite sure how Owl's Head got its name. Some say the picturesque promontory resembles an owl from the water but it takes a great imagination to see anything of the sort. Others say Owl's Head is the English translation of the Indian name for the spot, Medadacut. When Owl's Head was visited by Champlain in 1605, it was known as Bedabedec Point, an Indian word meaning "Cape of the Winds." The village called Owl's Head became a town in 1921. It had previously been part of South Thomaston.
