History

The area of land that now constitutes the park was donated to the state in 1964 by Francis J. Peaks. The gift was made in memory of his sister, Annie Peaks Kenny, and their parents, Joseph and Eliza Peaks, for whom the park was named.[1]

Landmarks

Norwood Castle sits along the shore of the lake. It was built in 1890 as a wedding gift of wealthy Foxcroft attorney Willis Parsons for his bride. Parsons became the first Commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.[1][4]
