Welcome To Danforth, Maine!
The Northern Most Town in Washington County is Danforth Maine.
Downeast Maine is on the north end of the coastline of Vacationland. To me, this is the real deal and what rural Maine is all about, not the commercial four color glossy propaganda on the more affluent, tourist driven sections of the rock bound coast. Danforth Maine is two townships, a large land mass that borders Aroostook County to the north.
MOOERS REALTY has blogged about Danforth Maine before online. This website information is to expand on the topic of Danforth Maine because like most small rural towns, the pickings are slim online for local community information. We try to help put the town of any size on the map.
The Washington County town named after Thomas Danforth. Who exactly was Thomas Danforth this small Maine town's namesake? In 1930 the population swelled to 1467 and judging by the quality of the housing design, this railroad rich town was an important train route junction.
The local Danforth Maine population has settled back to 589 local citizenry today. The everything was done locally home grown approach to living in Danforth Maine like most places has changed. But it is fun to remember, to share the way it was. Because the history is rich and one of a kind in these small Maine towns.
How To Get Here
Getting To Danforth Maine, how to do it best? Well it won't be to the local airport but you could land on one of the local Danforth Maine lakes with pontoons on your private plane. Heading up US RT 1 after a tour of the coast is one memorable travel option. No Interstate exit off 95 to put your blinker on and quickly access this Washingron County town. But getting off in Lincoln Maine and accessing RT 169 to come into Danforth is another route to consider. So is heading up US RT 2A and heading over through Wytipitlock or Haynesville Maine might be a good choice for travel options. US RT 1 heads down from Houlton Maine too which is one busy highway.
Things To Do For Fun
When East Grand Lake is in your town, you know one of the major options for recreational fun is going to be water related. East Grand Lake is 16,000 acres large and fun. But the Baskegan River flowage, Upper and Lower Hot Brook Lake are other waterfront recreational options. Danforth has a golf course, a neat public library. The views from the hillside coming into Danforth from any direction get your attention too.
Break bread with the locals. The most rewarding time and best education is to eat with the Danforth native population. At a local public supper, at a sporting event with a snack at SAD 14 East Grand Lake school event or local church supper. Danforth Maine has the Mill Yard for one tasty dining option. Knight Grocery Store across From Machias Savings Bank in downtown Danforth Maine has a deli with a large variety of take out items.
Everyone knows food taste better outdoors or grilled on an open fire with friends around you.
Plan your picnic over looking the lakes or river. Trails for snow sleds, ATV, for hiking, biking or just to be in the woods where all the wildlife live. This is where many vacationers and locals like to relax and be able to hear themselves think. Rent a spot on Greenland Cove East Grand Lake and park your camper.
