Historical Context:
Between 1913 and 1940, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., financed and directed the construction of Carriage Roads for the use of hikers, bikers, horse riders, and horse-drawn carriages on Mount Desert Island. These “broken-stone” roads through the woods are free of motor vehicles and cover an expanse of 57 miles, 45 of which are within Acadia National Park.
