About the

Nation's Attic Used Books eStore

of Yarmouth, Maine.


Nation's Attic Used Books eStore was created with the closing of our bricks and mortar store
on Yarmouth's Main Street in 2002. We continued to collect and sell books by Yarmouth
authors, genealogists, and historians. In addition to Yarmouth, we also collected the books
of a few Portland, Maine, publishers and authors, in particular, the publications of the
Colesworthy brothers of Portland and Boston.

The history of Yarmouth, Maine, is especially interesting and spans nearly 400 years of
European occupation. It is believed that there were settlers here as early as 1636. The town
offered four waterfalls on the Royall River and was called by its Native American name,
Westcustogo. It was wiped out by King Philip's War of 1675, but was reorganized by the
Massachusetts Bay colony in 1680 and named North Yarmouth. It initially included the
present towns of Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Cumberland, Freeport, Pownal, and Harpswell.
