Buxton Documentary!
Three years in the making, Buxton, Maine: An American Story details the rise and fall of Buxton's earliest industries and agriculture.  This wide ranging and fascinating look at 235 years of local history is told through the voices and memories of local people.  Produced with a grant from the Narragansett Number One Foundation, this engrossing, sometimes sentimental, and ultimately inspiring documentary with its aerial photography will inform, educate, and entertain anyone interested in local history.  Produced and directed by Patrick Bonsant with editing collaboration from Matthew Fletcher, the proceeds from the sales go to rehabilitating our headquarters at 100 Main Street, the former Bar Mills Elementary School and district office.

$25 for the DVD and $5 shipping option
