Nestled a few miles off the coast of Harpswell, Eagle Island State Historic Site is the former summer home of North Pole Explorer Admiral Robert Peary. Purchased in 1881 for $200, the island provides a perfect perch for Peary's summer home that overlooks Casco Bay and surrounding islands. For more information about the island, contact the park or the Friends of Peary's Eagle Island.
