EXPLORE MAINE!
Maine is the easternmost state of the contiguous united states and only borders one other state. Its beautiful coastline is jagged and rocky and offset by gentle rolling mountains. The interior is heavily forested and broken up by picturesque waterways. It is famous for its seafood cuisine, especially lobster and clams.

When the first Europeans arrived, Maine was inhabited by Algonquian speaking people. Although the French and English attempted to settle in the area, the climate, lack of essentials and conflict with the locals made it extremely difficult.

Maine was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820 when it voted to secede from Massachusetts to become a separate state. On March 15, 1820, under the Missouri Compromise, it was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state. 

Maine has 5 National Park Units and is part of the Appalachian Trail, it has 38 State Parks and 17 National Historic Sites.

State of Maine” is the regional anthem of the state of Maine, adopted as the state song in 1937. It was written and composed by Roger Vinton Snow, who died in 1953.
