"Ellsworth: Then and Now"
In honor of the Maine State Bicentennial, Bill Fogle, president of the Ellsworth Historical Society will present a photographic journey through Ellsworth's history. Relying on the rich library of images and documents in the Society's collection, the story of Ellsworth's past -- and present -- will be told in the words of Albert Davis, Mark Honey, Deale B. Salisbury, Herbert Silsby, and Darlene Springer. Ellsworth has been fortunate to have both talented and innovative photographers and educated and visionary historians. Join us for a celebration of the city's well-documented history!

Bill Fogle was elected president of the Ellsworth Historical Society in 2019. His mother was born in Ellsworth where she spent the years before her marriage. He is the nephew of Deale Salisbury and Leah Allen. His professional work was in the field of publishing, and he is currently creating a series of short historical videos to feature on the Society's Facebook page and YouTube channel. Bill lives in Robert and Dorothy Noe's old house on Elm Street.
