Visit Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

And The Fishermen's Museum

Above view is from from the rocks in front of The Point House.

"Pemaquid Point Light... is the delight of artists, photographers, and tourists. Pemaquid Point itself entrances both land and water visitors by the fascinating northwest-southeast varied veins of rock formation that look for all the world as if great giants had "pulled taffy" while the rocks were in a molten condition."

--By Malcolm F. Willoughby, The Boothbay Register, 1962

The Damariscotta Region is located on Route One, approximately 55 miles north of Portland, Maine. Within this region you can enjoy clear salt and fresh water pleasures (we even have our own swimming holes). There are parks for picnics, hiking and camping. Nature preserves and historical points of interest. Honest to goodness working harbors and small towns.

Colonial Pemaquid-Restored by the State of Maine in 1907, Fort William Henry is an icon of New England History, having been claimed and/or destroyed at various times since early in the 17th century by the British, pirates, Indians, the French and ultimately local citizenry.

Pemaquid Lighthouse Park-The lighthouse, built in 1827 above spectacular granite cliffs, has been the subject of countless paintings, photographs and the site of many marriage ceremonies. Today the light is automated and the adjoining keeper's house is home to the quaint Pemaquid Fishermen's Museum containing exhibits of the local fishing trade including photographs, ship models, and artifacts.

Pemaquid Beach Park-Beautiful crescent shaped white sand beach is open to the public for a nominal fee. Bathhouse, restrooms, refreshment stand, picnic tables, plenty of parking and a new Town Ballfield.

Rachael Carson Salt Pond Preserve-On the shores of Muscongus Bay, a bit of the sea is left behind in a salt pond every time the tide recedes. This one-quarter-acre tidal pool was a favorite spot of Rachel Carson and was dedicated to her in 1970.

Harrington Meeting House-Built in 1773 it contains a small museum of old photographs, clothing and books. The adjoining cemetery has gravestones of historical interest. Open July, August and into September; Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 2 to 4:30 p.m.

Oyster Shell Heaps-The oyster shell heaps of Damariscotta and Newcastle date back at least 2,400 years. Visit by land or water, these are ancient remnants of centuries of bivalve feasts left by Indians who summered along the shore of the Damariscotta River.

St. Patrick's Church-Built in 1808, oldest surviving Catholic Church in New England. Known for it's Paul Revere Bell.

Dodge Point-Three miles from town. Public preserves on 300 acres of the Damariscotta River. Great for hiking, pebble & sand beaches, beaver dams, interior and shore trails.
