The River Road to Lewiston, Maine

A few weekends ago, we took a cold drive to Lewiston, Maine, in search of the last resting place of one of my ancestors.  The cemetery was snowed in and locked up but we enjoyed exploring this classic New England mill town.  Lewiston is home to a community of recent immigrants from Somalia, as well as the descendants of the French Canadian, Irish, Welch, German, Lithuania, Polish and English immigrants who worked in the textile mills in the early 1900s.
Along the river road into town we saw hundreds of crows.
The red brick mill buildings define the urban landscape.
