South Berwick - York - North Berwick
"A harbor, even if it is a little harbor, is a good thing, since adventurers come into it as well as go out, and the life in it grows strong, because it takes something from the world, and has something to give in return."—South Berwick native Sarah Orne Jewett, from River Driftwood, 1881
