While looking for family history I came across pixs of my home town. Wow! The hospital where I was born and a school I attended. I have lost touch with my cousins Victor and Kerry Crosby . Anyone hear from them? Glad to see the Crosby (Neal) Funeral Home is still in business.

What a great website!!! Love the photo of the Town Council with TM David Pearson who I grew up with. Dexter looks like a terrific place to visit and better yet live there. Quite a move from Springer Cabins in Orono to the Dexter Town Manager. But I'm not surprised at any of this. In hindsight David was a very astute thinker and planner. Maybe we'll pay a visit to Dexter. We have been to Bar Harbor 4 times so we know we can get thaya from heya. Cranberries to ya!!

I’m seeking information about my grandmother, Laura (Rolfe) Chandler. Years ago I was told that she sold Chevrolets when young, before my recollection. I’m 79. I’ve tried to find information on Dexter auto dealers. I understand that there were three generations of Baileys that had a garage that included a Chevrolet dealership. I would appreciate any clues as to Laura’s activities.

Hi to all you Dexter folks
My name is Keith Thompson and I live in Blackburn, Lancashire, England.
My mothers brother George Green emigrated to the USA in the Autumn of 1923 and settled in Dexter.
I was fascinated to see the pictures, old and new, on your web site and may I say what a wonderful peaceful town it appears to be and I can now understand why he loved the place so much.
If anyone knew him or his wife Margaret and their 4 girls I would like to hear from you (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am 68 years old now and I'm afraid I may not be able to visit Dexter to enjoy the town and its surroundings, but I can follow your progress by your excellent website All the best for the future

I was on FaceBook tonight trying to locate old classmates and them remembered this great site..... It's been a while since I signed the guestbook so I thought I would stop by to read the posts and sign-in myself.
I see that back on 3/5/09 Joey Martinez (Joey Ogden) signed in and was talking about old school mates. Hey Joey if your out there this is Tonya Davis. I was in your grade also. Do you remember me? Me and a group of my girl friends in school had a crush on you and we used to play kissin' tag at recess. LOL. :)
Just thought I would say hello and wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!

I was interviewing a man with the last name Bray and thought, “You know, when I lived in Dexter I knew a couple of Bray’s….. hmmm, JENNIFER, that’s what my classmates name was!” So I googled Jennifer and stumbled on this site.
I grew up in Dexter and I can’t tell you how many times my brothers and I remember the Good Ol’ Days. We each have our own stories of course, but the location is always the same, Dexter Me!!!!
I couldn’t wait to sign the guestbook.
Best Wishes to all of you in Dexter as well as all of us who have moved on but live their in our memories.
Hello Judy and everyone from Dexter,
I lived in Dexter for 7 years and loved everything about Dexter. You don't realize how nice a place is until you leave. I live now in Tallahassee, FL and I love it hear for different reasons, but as Dorothy said in "The Wizard of Oz", "there's no place like home". I've been back to Dexter several times since I left in 1980. The last time was for mom's funeral(2003) and found out that Coach Stellar past away around the same time. I ran into Mike Stellar and other people that I enjoyed seeing again. I didn't know about this site or I would've logged in sooner, better late than never!!!
Thank you, Drake Conrad

Well, I'm not from Dexter or ME at all, but I sure do love (and GREATLY MISS) the Dexter Shoes that I can no longer purchase. The alternate brands are not alternate at all...they do not compare in value and durability to these.
I'm sorry to see that the Dexter Shoe Co. closed down and sold to Payless.
I've been buying Dexter Shoes for 15 years now. I don't know what I'm going to do, since my final pair should be "retired" to the trash can.
Can anyone give me a lead on where I can purchase Dexter's shoe leftovers?
PS: My son and his family live in N. Anson, so I guess I can say that I am connected to ME anyway. We travel up to them at least a dozen times a year.
Thanks for your time and hi to all of you.
- Wednesday, April 23, 2008
I was just wondering if there's a class of '93 - 15 year reunion in the works? Lori, any ideas? :o) I'm still in China so I probably won't make it but I'd still like to see it happen. God bless all of you in the class of '93 and also the rest of the DRHS alumni.

Bob "the beggar" Neal - class of'55 asking for something. A photo or photos of the class of '57. I had a few friends and acquaintances and could not be at the Alumni Assoc. lunch. If some kind hearted soul has a computer and a scanner, I would much appreciate some photos.
Great site; I don't visit the area often but I do visit the site. I wonder why more people aren't using it.

Does anyone have a recipe from Wassookeag School Camp from a Yankee magazine article that was published several years ago? It is called the Wassookeag Special, a dessert recipe by "Auntie" Elsie Sharp who was the cook. This is one of my kids favorites and I have lost the page of the article that has the recipe!

The site looks good. It's nice to see what's up with good ole Dexter.

Hello Judy: I am Beth Martin from Canaan, and have in my possession handwritten notes written in 1955 from one Ruby Morris Goven, who, at the Dexter Centennial, gave a 'reading' about her adventure at a home owned by the Smarts...she speaks of Frank Smart, Ora, Aunt Dell, Sadie. She is laterally in our extended family and these notes are precious...but...we cannot find any information on her birth, death, or even her existence! Just wondering if her name rings a bell with anyone in Dexter...we don't even know who she was...but do know that her maiden name was Morris...the same name as my ggrandfather. Who also spent years up in the woods of Greenville...logging.
Have shopped in Dexter with my daughter, who lives in St. Albans (these many years after Ruby made her presence known) and love the way the town goes uphill, visible from some distance...
And such IS Maine! Beth

When the 50 year groups get together, there are usually group pictures taken. I couldn't make to Dexter this year. I would NEVER ask anybody to send me a picture of a group for nothibg...until now.
Anybody got a picture of the "57 class and scanner and inet service? It's easy to do and I would appreciate it. I had some good friends in that class and would like to see if they showed up at the reunion.

Anne Ellis Poulin-DHS Class of 1957
Was up to Dexter, ME for 50^th class reunion, held on 8/10/07 at the Johnson Lodge on Puffer’s Pond. Wow! Wow! Thanks, Beverly Goldstone.
Our hosts were _exceeding hospitable_ considering our late hour change of plans due to unforeseen circumstances. We all had a great time figuring out who as who, where from & doing what.
Six of our class with some spouses attended the Alumni dinner at noon on Saturday, 8/11/07 at Dexter Regional High School Cafeteria [parking in the rear, folks].
We did vote to move NEXT years Alumni Dinner to the SAME weekend as the Wild West Days hoping to increase the attendance. Time will tell but seems a logical move.

This is for my father, Edward Lewis Engstrom, who was born and raised in Dexter Maine. Dad was born May 5th 1916 to Agustus and Virgie Engstrom. Lived there his whole life until marring mom in 1939 and moved to the Marshall farm in Dover-Foxcroft. Dad absolutely loved Dexter and spent lots of time there, at the lake side resturant and the many stores on Main Street.
He often had his nurse and care taker drive him around the back roads of Dexter in his later years, and had a wonderful time locating places he used to go to as a young man.

I have just returned from a visit to your fair town and Dover-Foxcroft. I had not been in the area in 20 years or so. This time, in conjunction with requirements of obtaining a Commercial pilots license I made use of the requirement to make a cross country trip of 300 miles or more and extended it another 125 miles to visit my good friends in Garland and Dover/Foxcroft. I flew into your fine little airport and was really tickled to see one of the old DEXTER shoe logo signs on the tiny Airport terminal building. I did meet one airport employee on arrival and he was very helpful. I departed the next day for my long return flight to Coatesville PA. In all my time in the Dexter area was positive and I hope to be back soon.

Anyone remember the Upton's on Forest Street?
- Wednesday, October 11, 2006
I would like to say a big, "THANK YOU", to all that extended sunshine and happiness to my Dad, Vincent Cangelosi, while he lived there, in Dexter. He went to be with the Lord on 7/28. He enjoyed visiting with the people at the laundromat, and most of all the Post Office personnel.
Also, I would like to thank the Baptist church there that would give him food. Thank you, to the friends he had there. This is from his daughter in Arizona. If you knew him, please e-mail me at: GodsGraceIsEnough@msn.com .Also, I'm looking for my brother, Vincent Jr. My dad really enjoyed the beauty of Maine, the snow and cold is a different story. Thank you.

Hello, my name is Brandy Libby. I would like to plan a trip back to Dexter. My Parents & Grandparents came from ME. My Maternal Grandparents lived in Dexter, ME, Mr. Paul LaPrice & Mrs. Blanche LaPrice. I visited Dexter once as a toddler & once as a 13 yr. old girl. I remember the beauty that surrounded me. I remember driving near Moosehead Lake and seeing a darn moose swimming across the lake. I remember stopping for lobster sandwiches, and picking berries from a field. The quant streets of Dexter. When I was there last in about 1985 there was only one street light, and a mail order Sears, and a dime store. I would love to purchase their old home. I also plan on visiting my grandparents graves. Paul & Blanche LaPrice were the most loving, caring grandparents. One day I will receive the oportunity to do so.

The story on Channel 2 recently about the Dexter Primary and Middle School being replaced brought back a lot of memories. I spent 6 years there when it was a combined Junior and Senior High School, graduating in 1965. I have many fond memories of Mrs. Crocker, Hammond, Slater, and Mr. Vickery, Clark, Blagdon, Shea, Rowe, Ross, Bodwell, Cushman, Hosapple, etc. I also had the priviledge of coming back to the same building my senior year at Farmington to Student Teach. At that time I taught with Miss Ducharm, as well as Charlie Bachelder, John Parola and Chib Clukey was the Principal. Teaching in my former high school was quite an experience. Of course, we will always remember how cold it was in the winter. I wonder what will be done with it after a new school will be built? Also, has anybody thought of how long a bus ride the kids will have from Garland and Exeter?

Hello to anyone reading this… I am planning a trip to Maine as soon as the airfares drop back to sanity. It’s been a long time since I was last there. It was when I was on my way to Iraq and our plane broke in Bangor. This time I am writing you from Kunsan A.F.B., South Korea. I will be leaving sometime around the end of July but have a short stay at home and then on to southern California for more duty. I would like to get there by fall foliage time. Take care and we’ll see you soon. email@example.com

Hi all. For Karen W. (and all who stumble onto Dexter) - Dexter was named after Samuel Dexter, famous lawyer and politician, who served variously in three national cabinet posts and probably never saw the town that bears his name.
Dexter graduated from Harvard in 1781, elected Federalist representative of Middlesex County in Mass. in the third Congress in 1792.
Served in the US senate from 1799, until appointed Secretary of War on May 13, 1800 under President John Adams.
In December of that year he was appointed Secy of the Treasury and served until 1801.
Father of five children, Dexter, whose residence at the time was Roxbury, Ma., died of scarltet fever in Athens, NY. He died in 1816, the same year our little community was incorporated.
This information, which can be verified on the internet, was published in the Dexter Maine 150th Anniversary booklet published by that greatest of newspapers - The Eastern Gazette
