WELCOME

The greater Blue Hill Peninsula region encompasses the towns of Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Deer Isle, Penobscot, Sedgwick, Stonington, and Surry. The landscape here is marked by sweeping views, blueberry fields, farmland, and the beautiful Maine coast. Tucked in among the ridges, valleys and the jagged coastline, you’ll find adventure of all kinds, from a day on the water or hiking on our many public conservation lands, an afternoon of gallery tours and shopping, to an evening dining out or of live music at a local brewery. You’ll find our communities to be diverse, independent yet interconnected. Anywhere on the Peninsula, you may strike up a conversation with a lobsterman, boatbuilder or sailor who knows these waters like the back of their hand. You will find locally sourced food and highly skilled craftspeople and artists in every town and village in our region. And anywhere you go from Stonington to Penobscot, you’ll find evidence of the resourcefulness, dry wit and creativity that has defined our region’s culture for centuries. This region was home to the Wabanaki People before the arrival of Captain Joseph Wood and John Roundy in 1762. The early economy centered around ship building and quarrying. Lumbering, lobstering, fishing and farming have played an important role in our economy and culture since the earliest days. By the late 1800’s the region had become a summer destination. Today, many of these industries coexist with a thriving art, music and food scene to create this unique place called The Blue Hill Peninsula. Welcome. We’re so glad you came!

HISTORY

The Blue Hill Peninsula is home to a wealth of historical societies and museums whose treasures tell many rich and varied stories. What better way to learn what makes a town special then a visit to the historical society or town museum? Each is lovingly cared for and presented by members of the community who are eager to share with you, so why not take the time to visit, learn and be inspired. And with everyone’s new interest in “finding our roots,” a visit to a historical society or museum may be just what you need to discover that long lost relative!

Grindle House on Castine’s historic and picturesque town common, the Society serves as a window into Castine’s extraordinary past. Through its seasonal, permanent and changing exhibitions, lectures, town walking tours, and historic reenactments, the Historical Society reveals the historic treasures and stories still present throughout the town. The Castine Historical Society, located in the Abbott School and Samuel P. Grindle House on the town common, serves as a window into Castine’s extraordinary past.

and among indigenous cultures through displays from Africa, the Americas and Bali, to name just a few.

WOODLAWN MUSEUM, GARDENS & PARK, RTE. 172, IN ELLSWORTH Woodlawn is a 180-acre historic estate located a quarter mile from downtown Ellsworth, Maine. Once home to three generations of the Black family, it is now treasured for the Black House, its historic house museum, community and formal gardens, and its public park with walking trails. Visitors can explore a superb historic house, stroll through beautiful gardens, play croquet, hike on pristine trails, and much more.

FORT KNOX HISTORIC SITE, 740 FORT KNOX RD, PROSPECT, MAINE Located on the west bank of the Penobscot River in Prospect, Maine, in an area known as the Penobscot Narrows, Fort Knox is one of the best-preserved military fortifications on the New England seacoast. The fort has many unique architectural features, as well as a rich history behind its walls. During the country’s infancy, Maine was repeatedly involved in northeast border disputes with British Canada. In fact, the area between Castine and the rich lumber city of Bangor was invaded and occupied by the British during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Fort Knox was established in 1844 to protect the Penobscot River Valley against a possible future British naval incursion.

COVID-19 restrictions will reduce museum hours in 2021. Please call for information and an updated schedule. The park and gardens are open daily free of charge from dawn to dusk.

FARM TO TABLE The state of Maine has over 1.4 million acres in farmland (about 8,200 farms), 60% of which are held in small farms of less than 100 acres. Maine now ranks first in agricultural sales, in no small part due to the thriving network of farmers markets, farm stands, and to farm-to-table restaurants. Agricultural production on the Peninsula embodies the interdependence of culture, food and a healthy economy. This Peninsula is home to roughly 40 farms. They are all small family-run farms, committed to the land and to producing high quality produce, dairy and meat products. Farmers here produce year-round, despite our notorious winters. With a farmers market in every town, you’ll find farm stands all around the peninsula and you can even buy from the on-line farmers market FarmDrop, or can have a care package of locally produced goods delivered to you from Peninsula Provisions. Farm-to-table dining offers the finest collaboration between the regions talented chefs and its dedicated farmers. Across the Peninsula, chefs work with local food producers to deliver the finest dining experience - they can tell you where your steak or oyster was raised, what type of heirloom tomato you’ve been served and why the local cream makes the best flan. The peninsula’s farmers markets are homegrown, community driven markets offering a changing mix of farm products, including produce, meat, dairy and eggs. Local coffee roasters, tea producers, the local saltworks, beekeepers, bakers, fishermen & women, and craftspeople are also well-represented. Each farmers market reflects the nature of its town, and each trip to the market is a unique experience.

TOWNS

BLUE HILL Nestled between Blue Hill Mountain and the protective arm of Blue Hill

Bay lies the town of Blue Hill. In 1762, the town’s founders sailed up the bay, disembarked at Mill Island near the reversing falls and built their homes there. Incorporated in 1789, Blue Hill first made a name for itself as a shipbuilding and lumber center, it’s sawmills and craftspeople turning out brigs and schooners, masts, cordwood and shingles. Granite from Blue Hill was prized for its high quality and made its way to such notable buildings as the US Stock Exchange and the Brooklyn Bridge. By the mid-1800’s, the town became a summer destination. Today, Blue Hill is rich with artists and craftspeople, excellent food, gracious lodging, art galleries and small shops. Blue Hill welcomes visitors and residents alike to hike its forests and to canoe, kayak and sail its waters. As a service center, the community offers excellent public and private schools, a library that has been the cornerstone of intellectual and social activity in town since its founding in 1796, and a full-service hospital. Blue Hill offers community events such as the traditional blueberry pancake breakfast at the Congregational Church, a summer concert series featuring the steel drum band “Flash! in The Pans,” classical music at Kneisel Hall, Blue Hill Bach and choral music by the Bagaduce Chorale. The Memorial Day Parade, the famous Blue Hill Fair, and both a winter and summer farmers market are just some of the social, recreational and musical events Blue Hill has to offer.

BROOKLIN A small, lively town at the southern

end of the Peninsula, Brooklin was initially settled as part of the town of Sedgwick. Brooklin was incorporated independently in 1849. With miles of beautiful shoreline come the town’s chief industries fishing and boatbuilding. The town is world-famous for its boatbuilding history and is home to The Brooklin Boat Yard, The WoodenBoat School and WoodenBoat Magazine, along with many smaller builders and design shops. Brooklin offers a charming town center with a beautiful library, small shops, galleries, groceries and provisions. Along its winding roads, travelers will catch stunning glimpses of the Benjamin River and the Eggemoggin Reach. Brooklin hosts several wellknown events each year, including the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta and a magnificent 4th of July parade.

BROOKSVILLE The town of Brooksville dates

back to the early 1800’s. It encompasses the villages of: Harborside on Cape Rosier (also known simply as “the Cape”); South Brooksville - home to Buck’s Harbor Market, and the white steepled church made famous by Robert McCloskey’s illustrations; North and South Brooksville; and Brooksville Corner. Brooksville’s rolling fields and woodlands, it’s coves and harbors and its seat at the mouth of the Bagaduce River make it a popular destination for boating, kayaking, hiking and for simply getting away from it all. Shell fishing, aquaculture and farming are staples of the town’s economy. Holbrook Island Sanctuary State Park on Cape Rosier offers 7.5 miles of oceanfront and woodland hiking, diverse ecosystems, and beach access. The Park is maintained by The Friends of Holbrook Island Sanctuary, and can be accessed from the Cape Rosier Rd. For more information, including park maps, visit www.friendsofholbrook.org.

TOWNS

CASTINE Settled in 1604, the historic town of Castine is one of the oldest in the nation and the only town on the Peninsula to have been occupied at various times by the French, the Dutch and the English. Its strategic location at the mouth of the Penobscot River estuary, along with such colorful figures as Paul Revere and the Baron de St. Castin, made the town a notable trading and maritime center, and a prominent player in the fight for American independence. Today, Castine offers walking tours of its historic buildings, including three forts and Dyce’s Head Lighthouse. It is home to Maine Maritime Academy, and it’s downtown offers a wonderful mix of architectural gems, gracious hospitality and fine dining. Shops and galleries dot the hilly streets leading down to the waterfront.

Summer season in Castine offers something for everyone. Our 4th of July celebration includes a parade, firetruck rides, hot dogs, watermelon and a variety of children events on Town Common- a real “slice of Americana!” The day ends with an amazing fireworks display over our historic harbor. On July 14th we celebrate our French heritage with Bastille Day lectures, cooking demonstrations, kid-friendly events on Town Common and our Picnic en Blanc with hundreds, dressed in white, seated at a common table. Our Plein Air Festival, July 19-21, 2018, attracts artists from away and culminates in an Exhibition and Art Sale. And all summer long, the Castine Yacht Club hosts races on Penobscot Bay, in a variety of classes, including the Camden to Castine Classic Yacht Race on August 2nd. Throughout the summer, events and lectures are hosted by the Wilson Museum, Castine Historical Society and our Witherle Library where parents and children alike learn of our rich and storied history from events like Revolutionary and Civil War encampments/reenactments.

DEER-ISLE & STONINGTON

Reachable by bridge, Deer Isle still retains the flavor of New England life in the 1950’s: rural, neighborly, and safe. A cluster of small communities with almost 3,000 residents comprise the year-round population. Lobstering is the mainstay of the economy although the diversity of the Island’s businesses draws many visitors from off Island. Granite is still quarried here. Internationally renowned Haystack Mountain School of Crafts has brought a plethora of artists and artisans to the Island, many of whom have chosen to live here permanently. Galleries and studios dot the island. We have two performing arts facilities – the Stonington Opera House and the Reach Performing Arts Center. The Opera House provides numerous productions throughout the year. The schools, churches and community organizations on Deer Isle play a central role in bringing the community together. Public suppers, festivals, craft fairs, boat races, school sports events and workshops all contribute to a strong sense of community and island pride. A wide variety of accommodations are available from inns to campgrounds. Restaurants, coffee bars, antique shops, libraries, gift shops, book stores and galleries all offer a rich selection of places to visit, to browse and, of course, to Buy Local. The Island Heritage Trust and the Deer Isle-Stonington Historical Society provide glimpses into the history of the people who first inhabited the Island. They are not to be missed. Deer Isle is a paradise for photographers, birders, boaters, artists, naturalists and anyone who loves the outdoors. We are fortunate to have twelve very diverse nature preserves, many donated by generous residents. Several other conservancies are located on neighboring islands, including Acadia with park land on Isle au Haut. The mixture of sprucecovered islands, quiet coves, granite outcroppings, fields of lupine, windjammers, glistening waters and pristine winter snow make a visit to Deer Isle, at any time of year, an enriching experience.

TOWNS

PENOBSCOT The small, quiet town of

Penobscot was one of the earliest settlements on the Peninsula. It’s interior marshes, ponds and the Northern Bay are popular destinations for birding, leisure fishing, kayaking and boating. Incorporated in 1787, the town remains a treasure trove of the region’s history. The Penobscot Historical Society hosts a much-loved pig roast during the height of the summer.

SEDGWICK

The town of Sedgwick was incorporated in 1798 and named after Major General Robert Sedgwick who ousted the French from neighboring Castine. The township’s boundaries diminished as land was taken to form the neighboring towns of Brooksville and Brooklin in the early 1800’s. Early settlers found the land more suitable to grazing, quarrying and logging, due to the long, rocky ridge that runs between the Bagaduce river and Salt Pond. Blueberry barrens dot the landscape, offering scenic views, most notably Caterpillar Hill. The town’s coastline stretches along the shores of the Eggemoggin Reach, separating the Peninsula from Deer Isle. The mouth of the Benjamin River offers sailors and other boaters a quiet cove, and village of Sargentville is the gateway to Deer Isle.

SURRY

Nestled between Ellsworth and Blue Hill, the town of Surry is a beautiful small town that touches Patten Pond, Toddy Pond, and the Union River Bay. Home to the Carter Nature Preserve, Surry is a perfect place to kayak, swim or enjoy nature close up. You can catch breathtaking views of the mountains of Acadia National Park. It is close to many of the area’s attractions, yet still quiet.
