The following sketch of the Corner Village, Yarmouth, Maine, as it was about 1850, has been furnished by an old resident of the town. Additions and corrections are solicited. The names of the original owners of the buildings, with any particulars of extraordinary events connected with the same, will be appreciated and acknowledged.

As an aid in tracing localities of particular houses, the diagram opposite this page will be found useful. No attempt has been made to give the proper proportions, as no measurements were available, but with the diagram and the text it is easy to locate any building then existing in the village.
