the beautiful City of Rockland on the occasion of its Sesquicentennial. The city, located on the west side of Penobscot Bay and enclosed by Jameson's Point on the north and the projection of Thomaston terminating in Owl's Head on the south, was first visited by John Lermond and his brothers, who in 1767 built a camp and produced a cargo of staves of oak and pine lumber. From these first visitors, the area became known as Lermon's Cove. Its Indian name was Catawamteak, signifying "great landing place." Permanent settlers came to the area in 1769. Fishing, shipbuilding, lime processing and granite quarrying have all been part of the city's growth and development. The Captain John Ulmer family was instrumental in the growth and development of Rockland, building mills and vessels and processing lime.
