Great Spruce Head Island

Great Spruce Head Island is a privately owned island in Penobscot Bay, Maine. It is part of the Town of Deer Isle, in Hancock County. It has long belonged to the family of the painter Fairfield Porter and his brother, photographer Eliot Porter, both of whom did creative work there. For example, Eliot's book Summer Island (1966) is a visual tribute to the island.[1]
