Maine's Trotting Parks of the Past

From time to time we like to post some items of historical interest (if it is about Maine).  I just ran across a blog entitled "Maine's Lost Trotting Parks".  It is a part of Maine that no longer exists and something I really didn't know about.  Below is an introduction to the blog:
"After the American Civil War, the trotting horse industry flourished. Trotting parks were built throughout the State of Maine. At one time, there were more than 92 trotting parks in Maine. Few of these parks remain today. You are invited to participate in this blog and recreate the rich history of Maine's trotting parks and the horses that established the industry."
