Annual Reports

I scanned, cropped, OCRed, and uploaded the Annual Reports of the Town of Scarborough to Digital Maine – Scarborough Books.  These reports are from the personal collection of Rodney Laughton. They typically include information regarding the support of the poor, almshouse expenses,  various town bills, costs of town roads and bridges, school costs, & teacher salaries.
