Eagle Island

Eagle Island is a State Historic Site in the United States state of Maine. It is an island in Casco Bay, Maine and is preserved because it is the site of the retirement home of Admiral Robert Peary, the polar explorer. Peary bought the island in 1881 and retired there in 1911, after he had achieved fame and glory with his (sometimes disputed) expedition to the North Pole. His family continued to live in the house he built there, but donated the island to the people of Maine in 1955.
