Winslow

www.winslow-me.gov

Located on the east bank of the Kennebec River across the bridge from Waterville, Winslow is a town rich in history and pride. Settlers arrived in the early 1700s and built their homes around the protective Fort Halifax on the confluence of the Sebasticook and Kennebec Rivers, major routes in transporting food, goods, and more settlers. The Winslow Fort Halifax Blockhouse, formerly the nation’s oldest wooden structure of its type, was rebuilt from some of the timbers of the original blockhouse that were swept down the Kennebec River by raging flood waters on April 1, 1987. Winslow has a population of approximately 8,000 and provides excellent commercial, industrial, and residential opportunities. Johnny’s Selected Seeds, one of the world’s top rated seed catalog companies, is open for business on Benton Avenue in Winslow.

Belgrade

www.townofbelgrade.com

Tens of thousands of people flock to the heart of the Belgrade Lakes region each summer to enjoy one of the seven bodies of water that make up the Belgrade chain. When the weather is warmest and the lush vegetation greenest, Belgrade’s population surges to nearly triple its normal 3,200 residents. Some seasonal residents stay or return in the fall for spectacular leaf-peeping around the lakes and in the panoramic hills. The lakes, particularly Long Pond and Great Pond (inspired setting for the play and movie On Golden Pond), are the main attraction, of course. Their cool, clear waters offer endless opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing, waterskiing and paddling. One can even ride along with a postal carrier as he delivers mail by boat. Loon-watching is a popular pastime on the lakes, whose banks are crawling with critters—great (moose), small (chipmunks), and majestic (bald eagles). Come winter, recreation upon the frozen waters turns to snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice skating and snowshoeing. Cross-country skiing and hunting are other winter favorites. Nestled among rustic woodlands and rolling hills, Belgrade Lakes Golf Club offers a breathtaking golfing experience. Ranked among the nation’s top public courses, the playing experience offers 18 memorable holes that meld country club-level service with authentic Maine accessibility. Belgrade is a short jaunt from Waterville (15 miles) and Augusta (10 miles).

Sidney is a fast-growing community noted for having one of the lower tax rates in Kennebec County. Surrounding the town to the east is the Kennebec River and to the west is Messalonskee Lake, where the headquarters for the famed Snow Pond Center for the Arts is located. The lake is also surrounded by summer resorts and cottage colonies. Both Messalonskee Lake and the Kennebec River have public boat access, and several small ponds make up a nice, rural setting. Centrally located are the Town Office, Grange Hall, Transfer/Recycling Facility, and the Public Works Department. The James H. Bean School, grades K-5, has been recognized by the State of Maine as a leader in efficiency and education. The district is distinguished by having had two National Educator Milken Award winners, both from Sidney. Located in three strategic areas are the town’s Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, serving the needs for all fire and rescue. Access to neighboring towns and cities, such as Waterville and Augusta, are Routes 23, 27, 104 and Interstate 95. I-95 makes this town a prime location for industries because of its 2 sets of entrance and exit ramps. One is located off the Lyons Road and the newest addition is off the Trafton Road. The rest of the community is a rural atmosphere made up of farming and small business.

Thorndike

www.thordikeme.com

The town of Thorndike was established in 1819. It is a quaint little village with a population of 890. Miles of winding rural roads capture breathtaking views. The small community is famously known for the “Gordon Hill Murders” that took place June 16, 1873. The court handed down a guilty verdict and a sentence of hanging was carried out. A letter later arrived claiming the wrong man was hanged; someone else had committed the gruesome murders. Because of this trial, capital punishment was ended in Maine.

Bass Fishing Bassmaster Magazine named this region as having three of the top 25 bass fishing lakes in the Northeast. These bodies of water include China Lake at number 13, Webber Pond at number 15 and Great Pond at number 18. Not only do we have some of the best bass fishing in New England, but Messalonskee Stream has the only wheelchair accessible platform in Maine. Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce was awarded the Governors’ Conference on Tourism 2017 Marketing and Promotion Award. Previous initiatives included attracting Major League Fishing’s Summit Cup and Fishing University that aired on Outdoor Channel, and most recently, Hank Parker’s Outdoors that taped three episodes that aired in early 2018. Recently, www.midmainebass.com was created by local fishermen to help local and visiting anglers find their way around mid-Maine and to identify the best bass fishing in the country. The site shows maps and photos of boat launches to make it easier to find lakes, rivers, fishing holes and accompanying parking. There are topographical maps of each lake to make planning trips quicker and more relaxing. Bloggers post full stories and videos to help organize expeditions to the area. Visit the site for an extensive list of bait shops, marinas, lodging, restaurants and local recreational tournaments. Upcoming tournaments are posted in the “Events” section. The “Local Lunkers and Photo Gallery” allows fishermen to share and upload photos, stories and details about bass caught in the area. Find more stories and photos on Facebook at “Mid-Maine Bass Fishing”. 26

Fishing Maine is home to some of the most pristine waterways, clean air, and expansive outdoor activities anywhere. The mid-Maine region, centered in Waterville, provides easy access to anything that an outdoor enthusiast would want to do. It is home to a variety of fishing venues, including China Lake, the Belgrade Lakes Chain, Webber Pond, Unity Pond, Kennebec and Sebasticook rivers, and many smaller fishing holes throughout the region. The lakes host many fishing tournaments, and when the winter cold sets in, ice fishing season really heats up! Its waters hold tremendous small and large mouth bass populations, and many of the lakes have significant trout and landlocked salmon populations.

Hunting With abundant acres of accessible hunting area, Maine is home to some of the best deer, moose, and bear hunting in the country. Bird hunting including wild turkey, waterfowl, pheasant and grouse draws many hunters to our state as well. Whether you prefer rifle, archery or black powder, we have a season for you! If you are a novice to hunting in Maine, you may prefer a guided adventure. For all hunting laws, license information and Maine Guide contacts visit Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife at www.maine.gov/ifw.

Bird Watching For birds and birders alike, Maine provides an abundance of excellent habitat. As the largest and most sparsely populated state in New England, Maine represents a significant portion of the breeding range for many eastern woodland bird species. The state’s abundant precipitation (more than 40” a year) and glaciated landscape have created thousands of lakes, ponds, wetlands, and rivers that are ideal habitat for a variety of water birds. (Source: www.maineaudubon.org/birding/) Be sure to bring your camera to these local bird watching hot spots!

Maine Maple Sunday As spring begins, so does the maple sugaring season! Somerset County is THE largest maple syrup producing county in the world! Sugar houses and making maple syrup in Maine is a tradition that goes back to before colonists first started coming to New England. Native Americans in the northern states first used maple sugar as flavoring for breads, stews, teas and more. Maple sugar was the primary sweetener before cane sugar was introduced. Maple syrup rendering takes long hours, dedication and perseverance. Maine Maple Sunday is all about showing off all that hard work. Farms invite the public in to enjoy treats, games, sugarbush tours, music, stories, and much more. Many sugarhouses are open both Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy the scenic views that Maine has to offer, and the sweet taste of maple syrup as you go from sugarhouse to sugarhouse.
