The State of Maine was at one time part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Some of the following photos are of Down East, part of Maine, or the mid-section of the Atlantic coast of Maine.  Some of the villages and towns include Wiscasset, Edgecomb, and Damariscotta.

The entire town of Wiscasset, Maine, is preserved as a National Historic Landmark. A typical plan is a wood frame house with a fireplace in the living room, staircase running up the middle of the house, double-hung windows and green shutters on both sides, with a living room on one side, and a dining room on the other side. The bedroom areas occupy the second floor. It is unusual in the area to see a house painted in any color other than white.

The Town of Wiscasset is known for Red’s Lobsters, the phone-booth sized dispensary of the best lobster sandwiches on the planet. And that’s no exaggeration.
