Yarmouth, Maine: Eartha
For those of you who are searching for information on Eartha Kitt, sorry.
Eartha is the name of the globe at the DeLorme Company, a firm in Yarmouth, Maine. It makes maps, all kinds of maps, more detailed maps than many of us will ever use.
Eartha is 42 feet in diameter and rotates. Visitors can go in and look at Eartha at close range, but it's tough to get a good picture of it inside. So this will have to do.
By the way, there also is a good gift shop inside, if you are in the mood to give someone a map. DeLorme is just down the highway from L.L. Bean in Freeport.
