The Village is all about your visit back in history … to a time soon after Maine became a recognized state in 1820, in that powerful period between the mid-19th and the mid-20th centuries when America – and Maine – became an industrial powerhouse – largely on the backs of small 24” gauge trains that lugged supplies and workers through narrow, out of the way passages to early settlers hungry to grow their villages and towns bursting with goods for export. (This excerpt taken from the Boothbay Railway Village website)

Georgetown, ME
(range: 5 miles)
Reid State Park bears the distinct honor as being Maine's first State-owned Saltwater Beach. In 1946, prosperous businessman and Georgetown resident Walter E. Reid donated land to the State of Maine to be preserved forever, and a few years later Reid State Park in Maine became a reality. Today, thousands of visitors enjoy Reid State Park's long, wide sand beaches like Mile and Half Mile, which are rare in Maine. Enjoyed as a recreational resource, the beaches are also essential nesting areas for endangered least terns and piping plovers and resting and feeding areas for other shorebirds. Rarer than beaches along Maine's coast are large sand dunes, like those at Reid. (This excerpt taken from the Reid State Park website)

Fort Popham is a semi-circular granite fort that was never completed, though construction began in 1862 for use during the Civil War. Modifications were made and the fort was used again in the Spanish American War and in World War 1. Historical records conclude that fortifications, probably wooden, existed here and protected the Kennebec settlements during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. It was nearby that the English made their first attempt to colonize New England in 1607. (This excerpt taken from the Fort Popham State Historic Site website)
