Stone Barn Farm Stories

Gathering memories of this wonderful place…

The Project

To preserve Harry and Cindy Owen’s legacy and their devotion to the Stone Barn Farm.

To gather stories, memories, and photographs from the Bar Harbor community and beyond about this wonderful spot.

To support Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s stewardship of this unique property far into the future.

From the Author:

I am starting this project in honor of my grandparents, Harry and Cindy Owen. My goal is to put together a book of historical facts, family stories, photos, art, maps, and recipes. But I also want to incorporate your stories. Harry and Cindy touched so many people in their lives and I want to know about all of it.

Whether your story is happy or sad, silly or serious, please consider submitting it here. I will be gathering stories throughout 2023 and hope to pursue publication in 2024. If successful, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

You may submit stories or ideas using the form below, or directly to StoneBarnFarmStories@gmail.com. (I am working on a snail mail option.)
