Bayview Road, Milbridge
The marina and nearby Jordan Pier buzz with active commercial and recreational boats, making it easy to imagine the days when local shipbuilders filled Narraguagus Bay deck-to-deck with coastal schooners, and the shoreline was crested with stately captains’ homes. Or recall later times, when the area’s sardine canning industry rivaled that of Eastport’s. Current fisheries have diversified from traditional shellfish harvesting to sea urchins and even slime eels. A historic, scenic walkway extends from the marina to a majestic granite sculpture near the town center.
