DescriptionCamden's beauty has attracted many writers, painters and artisans, including Edna St. Vincent Millay, whose career began in this town. A statue at the head of the harbor honors the poet, and Millay memorabilia is housed in the Whitehall Inn at 52 High St. Shaded streets, white clapboard churches and flower gardens contribute to the tranquil atmosphere.
