Discover Maine's Scenic Inland MidCoast

Welcome!

Appleton, Hope, Union, Waldoboro, Warren and Washington are all prime examples of classic rural northern New England with historically significant homes and small businesses clustered within a picturesque village center or on a town green. The surrounding rolling green fields and hills are dotted with working farms – a reminder and continuance of our agricultural heritage. Traveling along meandering roads you will see blueberry fields, apple orchards, sparkling lakes and ponds tucked into the forest. Both the Medomak and St. George, two pristine rivers, flow through our area as they rush toward the sea. We are proud to be out in the country!
