York Harbor, Maine: Oceanfront Village with Rich Colonial History
Located on Maine’s Atlantic coast, less than 10 miles north of the New Hampshire border, York Harbor combines four historical communities into one picturesque town. The Old York Historical Society promotes the area’s rich history, showcasing colonial exhibits and landmarks. A one-room schoolhouse from 1745, a tavern dating to 1750, and the 1719 Old Gaol prison are among the sites you can visit.
Spend your day strolling along the beach, or take a drive down Route 1 to see more than 20 antique shops stocked with furniture, fine china, and the occasional wooden nickel. Set out on foot, bicycle, or horseback to explore 10,000 acres of untouched coastal forest in the Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region. Another nearby attraction is Wiggly Bridge, believed by many to be the smallest suspension bridge in the world.
