The Roosevelt Campobello International Park is on Campobello Island, a part of New Brunswick, Canada. It is just across from Lubec, Maine, the easternmost tip of Maine. It is open for visitors beginning the last weekend in May for 20 weeks.
I am always amazed at how far Americans traveled in the late 1800s for their summer vacations. My husband’s family went to Maine from Cleveland via trains and steamers. Did they not know about the lakes in Michigan? My grandparents went from New York State to Campobello Island also via steamboat and trains. Really? What was wrong with the Hamptons? And, when they arrived at these places, they were very rustic. Clearly a sense of adventure was not passed down to me.
