Pool postcard: Ocean Park, Maine

Ocean Park is a community founded by Free Will baptists in 1881 with the purpose of "establishing a place of summer resort for holding religious, educational and other meetings..."

In the late nineteenth century, the camp meeting movement gave birth to more than 350 assembly centers scattered across the United States. Dedicated to self-improvement, this is one of the very few which still exist.
