View from Hedgehog Mountain

According to Maine an Encyclopedia, Winterville “is a plantation in Aroostook County, settled in 1846 and organized on June 6, 1884 from township T15 R7 WELS. The organization was confirmed by the Maine legislature in 1895. Located about 25 miles south of Fort Kent on Maine Route 11, the area is an attraction for fishermen and hunters. THe 2,400-acre, 100-feet deep St. Froid Lake dominates the plantation by running virtually its whole length from north to south. St. Froid Lake supports a sport fishery of statewide significance for salmon, lake trout, and brook trout. Of local significance, a popular hook-and-line smelt fishery exists both winter and summer.” There were 196 residents at the time of the 2000 census.
