50th Anniversary of Peyton Place

Camden is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the filming of Peyton Place this weekend.
Visitors will find that the town still looks remarkably like it did in the movie.

The Village Restaurant and the Village Shop are still there. The town's amphitheater overlooking Camden Harbor is the same, as is Mount Battie, where an innocent kiss is shared in the film. The Whitehall Inn still has rocking chairs on its big front porch, and the house at 77 Chestnut St. still has a white fence.

The arched sign that says "Entering Peyton Place" in the film can be found on Union Street, except that it welcomes people to Camden. [Link]
