The Bay View House on the Village Green burned down in November 1917. On May 1, this photo was taken of the remains. As reported in his book, "History of Camden, Maine," John Williams said that in July of 1918 "the remains of the Bay View House were removed, the rubbish hauled away, and the cellar filled in. This greatly enhanced the appearance of the area."
