Abstract
As illustrated by the Old Gaol at York, Maine, a preserved monument sometimes has a way of persuading the public to view history in a skewed, one-sided way. Restored using the money of the upper-class summer residents of York in the early-20th century, Kevin D. Murphy looks at the Old Gaol and raises the question of just whose history was being preserved, and what the motives behind it were.
