1889-90 Annual & School Report of Hampden, Maine



Annual Report of the Selectmen and the Report of the Supervisor of Schools of the Town of Hampden for the Year 1889-90.  Printed in Bangor, Maine by Mooney & Hurley, Printers, 1890.


Hampden, Maine is a town in Penobscot County and is situated along the Penobscot River.  


It seems there was no privacy afforded back then to people needing Town help.   The section on schools is very interesting, with names of Agents, Teachers and the School Supervisor.  The latter wrote a scathing opinion of the Agents, which another layer to some of their comments about individual teacher performance.
