A Short-Lived Maine Canal
Georges Canal Company, Rates of Toll -- Together with -- the Rules and Regulations Relating to the Georges Canal Company, for the year 1849. Thomaston, Maine : David J. Starrett, 1849.
An evidently unrecorded imprint, this pamphlet provides some of the only evidence of the short-lived Georges Canal Company. The toll rates for a variety of products are set, as are the rules affecting passage down the St. George River. The company was incorporated in the State of Maine in 1846 with the goal of opening a canal for navigation at a cost of $80,000. The first trip took place the year before this pamphlet was printed (in 1848) and the last trip took place the year after this pamphlet was printed (in 1850).
