article description
The town of Bucksport, spread out below the observation tower on the new Penobscot Narrows Bridge, was once defined by its paper mill. In recent years it has become a bedroom community for surrounding cities, as well as the home of Northeast Historic Film. A landscaped walkway has been created on a riverfront that was once a dump. Town Manager Roger Raymond, who took the job in 1985, gets much of the credit for the town's improvement. Residents hope the new observation tower will increase the town's visibility
