MAINE HOLIDAYS   >   USA 


Maine is a state in the New England region of the United States.

Regions in Maine : Down East, Maine Atlantic Coast, Maine Highlands, North Woods and Western Maine Mountains
 
Counties in Maine : Androscoggin, Aroostook, Cumberland, Franklin, Hancock, Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Oxford, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Sagadahoc, Somerset, Waldo, Washington and York

Maine is a popular tourist destination, but it also experiences harsh winters and, consequently, the great temporary influx of visitors occurs during the warmer months. Many of these visitors establish an alternate secondary residence in Maine during some or all warm months and then depart for their primary residence in the off-season. These are the summer people of Maine lore.

State Capital City of Maine : Augusta.

History of Maine

  History of Portland [ Wikipedia ]
Portland, Maine was originally called Machigonne by the native people who first lived there. It was settled by the British in 1632 as a fishing and trading settlement and renamed Casco. In 1658 its name was changed again, this time to Falmouth...
  Maines First Ship [ Bath ]
Almost 400 years ago ...a Maine vessel launched America's love affair with shipbuilding. In 1607 ...at the mouth of Maine's Kennebec River, a group of hardy English settlers established a fragile foothold on this coast, 13 years before the Pilgrims. Here they created the continent's first ocean going ship, a 30-ton pinnace, calling it The Virginia.
  Victoria Mansion [ Portland ]
Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America's highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.
