The Penobscot Exchange Hotel on Exchange Street in Bangor, built in 1827 and remodeled a number of times, was a popular hotel in Bangor's history. Its proximity to Eastern Railway Station on the Bangor waterfront appealed to travelers. Fred G. Moon and James W. Cratty were the proprietors beginning in 1897 (according to the 1897-98 Bangor City Directory). This pamphlet is not dated, but date is estimated to be between 1897-1910 (Bangor city directories for this period indicate Moon & Cratty as proprietors). The pamphlet describes the accommodations offered and has several pictures of the rooms.
