Markland Seaside Resort


In 1904 the new Markland Hotel was built on Cape Forchu Island at a site, fifty-five metres above sea level, with spectacular views. The hotel was part of a seaside resort comprised of old and new hotels and separate cottages built on the resort’s property. Although for years New England travellers made Markland a popular resort destination, business declined during World War I and finally the new Markland Hotel closed in 1925.

I thank Wilfred Allan for permitting me to display these postcards from his collection.
