"In the political and business life of the city of Ellsworth, Horace F. Wescott stands out prominently as a man who has always upheld the best interests of the town. His value in the opinions of his fellow-citizens is shown by the many years he has served both the city and county in political offices. In addition to his work in civil affairs, Mr. Wescott has for many years conducted the important hardware concern which bears his name. Mr. Wescott was born in Penobscot, September 24, 1861, son of Giles Wescott and Hester A. (Wardwell) Wescott, both of Penobscot, and who are now deceased. Giles Wescott was engaged in farming until his death. Horace F. Wescott was educated in the local public schools and after completing his formal education, he learned the trade of carpenter, which occupation he followed for eighteen years, acquiring a reputation for dependable and substantial work throughout the vicinity. In 1900, he entered the hardware business independently, as sole owner and propreity of the H.F. Wescott Hardware Company of Ellsworth.
