Highlands Katahdin Maine Historic Sites, Places & Architecture
The Highlands and Katahdin regions of Maine are an ideal place for history buffs. Maine’s rich history began with the ice age that helped in forming Maine’s unique geography including it’s mountains and valleys as well as the many islands off Maine’s coast. When the Europeans started settling Maine it was the extensive coastline that brought trade to the area helping it to flourish. The state of Maine has a long ironworks history, learn more about it at the Katahdin Ironworks State Historical Site, one of the largest ironworks producers of the mid to late 1800’s. We suggest you contact the site you are planning in advance as many may be operated seasonally. Ask us about visiting Maine or share your Maine historic site comments.
