Max Tibbetts, who spent decades transforming his Boothbay Region parcel of land with stones, rocks, and boulders, might today have been considered a visionary artist, though he had not thought of his project as art. According to a 1991 article in the Maine Times, he rather considered it to be an ongoing “cleaning up” on the heels of the famous 1938 hurricane, which had destroyed the lumber he had intended to use to build a house. After Max died, with the land under threat of being developed, Doreen and her family went in together to buy the property. Since then, the Rock Property has become an increasingly meaningful place—a haven from the tumult of the world, particularly for Doreen, who in this video shares reflections on just what makes it such a special treasure.
