A story about the real Antrim, Maine


The fictional town of Antrim, Maine is set in the Oxford Hills in the western part of the state. It is loosely based on Norway, a small town with nearby Norway Lake substituting for Antrim Lake. So imagine my surprise when I came across this article about the Weary Club of Norway. I think the story embodies what makes Norway such a charming town and why the whole area is a magnet for tourists.
