Description

Cumberland, Maine: Carnation Capital of the Country? builds on “Carnations and More Carnations,” a paper presented by Barbara Blanchard Garsoe at a meeting of the Cumberland Historical Society. The publication attempts to answer some relevant questions about Cumberland’s carnation industry, including why carnations, who were the growers, how did the industry get started, how long did it flourish and what caused its decline. Also considered are the consequences of globalization on a small, rural community. Some of the information contained come from interviews with Phil Chase, George Small, Peter Garsoe and Don Drew.
