There were two steamboats named Twilight. The first vessel, pictured here, was constructed in Bath by a Mr. Patten in 1871 and was brought to Lowe's Bridge by the Bangor & Piscataquis Railroad. It was then hauled by 30 pairs of oxen (60 animals) under the direction of Captain Frey to Moosehead Lake.Show Details
In 1888, the original Twilight was rebuilt under the ownership of the Coburn Steamboat Co. It operated on the lake until early 1900s when it burned. In 1910, the second Twilight was built by Stillman Sawyer of Greenville for Coburn Steamboat Co.
