The earliest residents in the Valley of Saco River go back close to 10,000 years. The Native Americans were said to be the first settlers dating back to 1642. There have been Native American trails that have been discovered along the shoreline of the river over the years. In the early part of the 1800’s, the valley abounded with farms and today, there are still signs of these early settlers including stones fences and cellar holes. The Crawford Depot and the Crawford Artists Studio are on the National Register of Historic Places.
