Kennebec River

The Great Flood of '87
The Great Flood of '87
On March 31, 1987, I was a bartender at Bravo's Mexican Restaurant in downtown Gardiner. I was closing the restaurant for the night, when the owner called me and told me to put out 7 or 8 sandbags in front of the back door (the River side) he had brought in earlier and left in the office as he had heard that it was possible the Kennebec might flood and we could get hit with some minor damage...
