Boom House!

Ripogenus Boom House

Hi Blue Viking:

We recently spent time on the West Branch Penobscot and Chesuncook Lake. We took out at the landing at Chesuncook Lake / Ripogenus Boom House shown in the attached photo.

I spent some time staying at this Boom House as a student years ago. I was impressed by the big kitchen and stove that must have served many a hungry logger.

I noticed someone has recently replaced the windows and doors.
