Welcome to the Northern Frontier!
“A frontier represents uncharted territory. It could be a remote piece of land or a new field of study, but if someone calls it “the frontier,” you are challenged to explore it.” (vocabulary.com) Therefore it seemed appropriate to use that word for our DownEast regions.
The DownEast Northern Frontier includes the towns of Grand Lake Stream, Princeton, and Baileyville. However, this is not a comprehensive list, and we will add more towns over time.
Fun facts about the Northern Frontier area:
- Grand Lake Stream “lodges, sporting camps, inns, and guides have been a mainstay since the 1800s. Area guides have a tradition of using/building Grand Laker Canoes(square stern) and cooking sumptuous meals on the shores of the lakes. It is incomparable to any outdoor experience. Many celebrities have come to this area and return because of all that is offered here.” https://grandlakestream.org/history.htm
- “Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge consists of nearly 30,000 acres of federally protected lands in eastern Maine. The refuge’s landscape is varied, with rolling hills, large ledge outcrops, streams, lakes, bogs, and marshes. A northern hardwood forest of aspen, maple, birch, spruce, and fir dominates the upland. Scattered stands of majestic white pine are common. The Edmunds Division boasts several miles of rocky shoreline where tidal fluctuations of up to 24 feet occur twice daily.”
