Scenic & Interpretive Trails

The Ice Age Trail

The Ice Age had a profound effect on the Maine landscape.  This effect is most pronounced in the Downeast region, where a vast sheet of glacial ice sculpted Cadillac and surrounding mountains, carved out the Sommes Sound fjord, and left spectacular sand barrens.  The Ice Age Trail is comprised of the finest and most accessible of these features.

Downeast Fisheries Trail

From Penobscot Bay to Cobscook Bay, the Downeast Fisheries Trail connects historic and active fisheries sites that illustrate the region’s maritime heritage. Marine resources sustain the culture and economy of Downeast Maine. The Downeast Fisheries Trail builds on these local resources to strengthen community life and the experience of visitors.

For more information about the project, website, email [email protected] or call 207.288.2944 x5834.

For a printed map-brochure of the Trail, please call 207.581.1435.

The Washington County Courthouse Heritage Center Museum and Genealogy Research Room

Open 9:30 am – 3:00 pm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday beginning Thursday, June 1, 2017. Phone call inquiries will be answered during open hours – 207-255-3127. Email inquiries to [email protected]

Following the opening of the Washington County Courthouse in May, 2016, two rooms located in the original section of the building were given over to the Courthouse Archives Committee. A large collection of Washington County genealogy research materials has been assembled. Among the materials are vital records, cemetery records, histories, and other materials devoted to Washington County towns, plantations and the Unorganized Territories. There is a large collection of hard-cover books on Maine towns and other states, particularly other New England states. In addition, there is a growing collection of books and manuscripts on Maine families. Rounding out the collections is an almost-complete set of Washington County historical societies’ newsletters, issues of Downeast Ancestry (complete with an index for easy reference), Second Boat, and the Essex County (Massachusetts) Genealogist.

The Museum grows with each passing day. Displayed are historical photos of some of the area towns, a four-glass-plate-negative compendium of Machias in 1921 taken from the less-populated side of the river, artifacts from a home in Addison (found in the wall), a Revolutionary War cannon ball found in Jonesport, and other items of historical interest. Centered in the room is a scale model of the Little River Lighthouse in Cutler, ME.
