Located in Liberty, ME (7 miles from Washington)

Lake St. George State Park is located 16 miles west of Belfast and 25 miles east of Augusta on the northwest shore of beautiful Lake St. George. State Route 3 ran parallel and close to the lake, which was originally part of a farmstead. The centerpiece of the park is Lake St. George itself. Some of the park's campsites are located right on the shoreline where a morning cup of coffee can be enjoyed while watching the sun rise over the crystal clear water.

Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse

(5 of 91)


Located in Stacyville, ME (17 miles from Washington)

Many people ask us if the breakwater was built to connect the lighthouse to the land. In fact, the breakwater was built first. In the 1850s several severe nor’easters caused considerable damage to many Rockland waterfront structures, businesses and to ships in the harbor. Lack of a protective breakwater clearly prevented the harbor from realizing its potential as a commercial port and a harbor of refuge for coastal shipping. In spite of citizen petitions and intervention by a local Senator, Congress did not approve constuction of a breakwater until 1880.
