"Head North, young man," Mars Hill
Hiram Adelman, a new immigrant from Russia, didn’t like the climate in New York City, so someone told him to head north. He took this advice to heart and rode the train as far north as it went at the time—to Houlton. There, he established one of the largest potato businesses in Aroostook County.
