Eden (Bar Harbor) Turns 225 Today – February 23
Happy Birthday Bar Harbor! Bar Harbor, or Eden, was incorporated on this day, February 23rd 1796! That makes Bar Harbor 225 years old!
Much like everyone celebrating a birthday during the Pandemic, there's nothing planned. But, if you're looking for an excuse to eat cake, or a cupcake for lunch or dinner today, here it is! It's Bar Harbor's birthday.
Just don't light 225 candles without notifying the fire department ahead of time!
