Description

The McMillan School of Fine Arts Vacation School was established by the artist and illustrator Mary Lane McMillan and her musician husband George McMillan.

During the 1920s and 1930s their summer home in Rome, Maine (located on Crystal Springs Camp Road) was used as a camp for vacation session students from their residence-studio school in New Rochelle, New York. Mary taught art classes outdoors to take advantage of the scenic beauty of the camp's surroundings.
