secret Maine nudist community rediscovered

Photographer rediscovers abandoned secret nudist colony in small Maine town

Nadeau, an Old Town native, said she learned about the hidden nudists’ retreat from friends whose relatives were once members back in the club’s heyday in the 1960s.

An abandoned outhouse, a few collapsing shacks and a glass bottle of baby oil from the 1970s are the only remnants left of the old colony. Nadeau said people at the time only learned of the club through word of mouth. The gathering place was remote — members had to hike through the woods to reach it — and those who participated were sworn to secrecy once they were allowed to join.

Now, decades later, few people in the town are aware Durham was ever home to a nudist colony.
