Get an Inn, Give an Inn: Essay Contest Winner to Soon Present Inn to Next Contest Winner

CENTER LOVELL, Maine - On June 6, the owner of a old Maine inn will give it away to the winner of an essay contest.

Mette Lützhøft produced this profile for the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland.
