Executive Director
Yarmouth Waterfront Development Corporation

It is with great pleasure that the Yarmouth Waterfront
Development Corporation dedicates this trail
to the memory of Robert E. Hartlin. The "Hartlin Trail"
extends through Yarmouth to Bunker Island. The trail
has been the catalyst for the rejuvenation of the
town's waterfront. Bob's visionary work has left a
lasting legacy to those who reside in or visit Yarmouth.
His perseverance and dedication in establishing
and implementing the vision of "the working waterfront"
will always be remembered in the hearts
and minds of all its users.
