Welcome to Central Aroostook!
Central Aroostook include the towns of Caribou, Fort Fairfield, Presque Isle and others.
Fort Fairfield: “Our Amish community, which extends into the neighboring community of Easton and across the border into New Brunswick, offers an opportunity to explore their old-world lifestyle. Visitors can capture a glimpse into their industrious world and shop for many handmade crafts, quality furniture and homemade baked goods, preserves and more!” (fortfairfield.org)
“Just outside of Caribou is the Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge, which has more than five miles of trails perfect for hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. The Aroostook Valley Trail passes through Caribou on its 28 miles of multi-purpose trails from Presque Isle to New Sweden. An unexpected treasure is the Nylander Museum of Natural History where there are delightful displays from the archeology, paleontology and other natural sciences collections. The museum exhibits the collections of Swedish-born naturalist Olof Nylander, who spent years studying the fauna of Aroostook County. The Caribou Historical Society is another popular spot with more than 10,000 artifacts on the campus and a replica of an 1860s one-room schoolhouse.” (visitmaine.com)
