OUR TOWNS

BELGRADE townofbelgrade.com Belgrade resident Norma Blazer boasts “it’s wonderful to wake up every morning in a place where other people go for vacation.” “Think about that,” she adds. She’s right on both counts. 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. The Belgrade Lakes Village embodies quintessential New England charm, replete with quaint stores and comfortable gathering spots, including the new Village Green. Sporting a classic white wooden gazebo, the green is

a lovely setting for listening to live music, exchanging wedding vows or picnicking. The latter might include some warm, doughy and delicious goodness from Hello Good Pie Bakery, a frisbee’s throw from the green. A short stroll down red-brick sidewalks leads to Day’s Store, a fourth-generation mercantile. The general store deals in everything from libations and freshly steamed lobster, to whoopie pies and hand-scooped Gifford’s Ice Cream cones, to fishing tackle and Mainecentric hoodies. Day’s also hosts wine tastings, open mic nights and free Saturday concerts throughout the summer. Like Day’s, the Village Inn and Tavern can be accessed by boat, car or foot. In business since 1921, the Village Inn is renowned for its 12-hour roast duck and popular for its summer evening concerts. With a star-spangled boat parade and a splashy fireworks display, the Fourth of July crackles with patriotism in Belgrade. The community’s signature event is its annual Bean Hole Supper each August, when firefighters bake beans in kettles buried in smoldering embers in a granite pit, then serve them alongside brown bread and homemade pie. North Belgrade offers easy access to McGrath Pond and to Salmon and Messalonskee lakes, as the Belgrade Depot area does to Messalonskee. Home of Hammond Lumber Co., the depot is a familiar stop for do-ityourselfers. Belgrade is a short jaunt from Waterville (15 miles) and Augusta (10 miles).

BENTON

BURNHAM

www.bentonmaine.info Benton is located on the east bank of the Kennebec River, across the three bridges from Fairfield. The area was first settled in 1763 and incorporated as Sebasticook on March 17, 1842. The name was changed to Benton in 1850. Benton has an excellent elementary school, a Veterans’ Park located on the bank of the Sebasticook River, the Fun Park for children of all ages, miles of walking trails, access to an unlimited amount of four wheeling and snowmobiling trails and an annual Alewife Harvest, which brings thousands of alewives to the banks of the Sebasticook. (Alewives are an important part of our State’s fishing industry.) Benton offers the pleasant feeling of small town closeness combined with easy access to all the benefits of the total midMaine community.

www.kvcog.org/index.php/ our-region/city-town-data/burnham Burnham is bordered by the Sebasticook River on one side and is known as the “Home of Lake Winnecook.” One of the streams running through Burnham gave the town its original name of Twenty-Five Mile Plantation. It was incorporated in 1824. Burnham is home to both industry and artisans, such as Pride Manufacturing and Burnham Shaker Products. The town offers a public boat launch, town beach, golf course, and Veterans’ Memorial Park, which honors local Medal of Honor recipient Corporal Carl Goodblood.

CHINA www.china.govoffice.com The town of China, originally settled in 1774, is a picturesque lake and farming community with a short commute to both the State capital of Augusta and to the Winslow/Waterville area.

China businesses are ready when residents and visitors gear up for outdoor fun in all seasons with four bodies of water: China Lake, Three Mile Pond, Branch Pond, and the Sheepscot River. It is a peaceful area with scenic hills, farms, ponds and streams. The town annually hosts China Community Days the first full weekend in August. Support for this highlyanticipated event comes from dozens of financial contributors and vendors from around the region, including an annual appropriation authorized by the Continued on page 12 www.midmainechamber.com photo by Joe Phelan

OUR TOWNS Continued from page 11 townspeople at the annual town business meeting. Many events are held throughout the 3-day weekend including fireworks over the lake which many people choose to watch from their boat. China Lake boasts excellent fishing. Resident and bassmaster David Barnes, Sr. reports that China Lake can be fished for large and small mouth bass, chain pickerel, yellow and white perch, stocked brown trout and an assortment of bait fish. China Lake was the location for the 2019 Major League Fishing Summit Cup championship round where 3-plus-pound bass were the key to winning. China Primary and Middle Schools are a vibrant community of learners. The quality of education in China rests on a strong foundation of talented and

dedicated staff, a history of innovation, the desire to constantly improve teaching, and an engaged and supportive community. China is also home to Erskine Academy, a private high school which provides a supportive and engaging learning environment with high expectations for student achievement. The China community nurtures local businesses and is actively supporting the process of creating. As we support local business, we support the future of our community.

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.

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 was 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

Recreation

Mid-Maine Bass Fishing

Maine prides itself on having the most pristine waterways, clean air, and expansive outdoor activities anywhere. The mid-Maine region provides access to any outdoor activity a fanatic would want. 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 and a half 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 tournament. 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”.

RECREATION

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. We are home to a variety of fishing venues, including China Lake, the Belgrade Lakes Chain, Webber Pond, Kennebec and Sebasticook rivers, and many smaller fishing holes throughout the region. Our lakes host many fishing tournaments, and when the winter cold sets in, our ice fishing season really heats up! Our waters hold tremendous small and large mouth bass populations, and many of our 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.

RECREATION

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/) Here are some of our local bird watching hot spots. Be sure to bring your camera!

RECREATION

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. Websites that list the times and activities being offered: mainemapleproducers.com/maine-maple-sunday#!directory/map www.maine.gov/dacf/ard/market_promotion/maine_maple_sunday.shtml Enjoy the scenic views that Maine has to offer, and the sweet taste of maple syrup as you go from sugarhouse to sugarhouse.
