Winter Harbor Maine
Winter Harbor was officially a town on February 21, 1895, after its successful secession from the town of Gouldsboro. In this transition, Winter Harbor acquired eighteen named Islands and just over 51 square miles of water, making it an ideal place to fish for lobster.
We have included a few photos of points of interest that make up the geography of Winter Harbor, so potential customers may get a more comfortable "feel" for the community from which their lobster purchase is being made. Enjoy!
P.S. For those interested, an in-depth book on the history of Winter Harbor is available from Ironbound Press at www.IronboundPress.com. The book is titled Musquito Harbor by Allan Smallidge.
