Joseph Bodwell was the first county agent in Piscataquis County. Here is his story of his adventures setting up the first extension office in Dover, getting acquainted with farmers in the county and overcoming many adversities.

This story was first published in The Shiretown Conserver from the Dover-Foxcroft Historical Society in the fall of 2017. They have given them permission to reproduce it here. Our thanks for their generosity.
