Bar Harbor Club

Picture and history included with each pen

This unique pen is handcrafted from hardwood removed from the old Bar Harbor Club building, which is currently being restored in Bar Harbor, Maine. The Tudor style building was dedicated in July 1930. It replaced the Bar Harbor Swimming Club building constructed in 1903. Amazingly the old swim Club buildings were removed and the new one constructed in nine months for the total cost of $263,000.

The Bar Harbor Club was a private meeting place for the wealthy summer people, where they dined and danced to the big bands that were brought in form the cities. Former Club members included the Proctor, Pulitzer, and Corning families. More recently local residences became members, and the club was still active in the 1980's. Unfortunately the club could not continue operating so the building has seen years of neglect and controversy.

The future use of the Bar Harbor Club building is uncertain, but the present owner is committed to the restoration of this famous Bar Harbor landmark.
