Welcome to Brooklin, Maine.
If you've ever read
Charlotte's Web, you know a little bit about Brooklin,
Maine. The author of Charlotte's Web, E.B. White, was a long time
resident of Brooklin Maine. He based many of his book's observations on life
in this town and surrounding area and the animals in his barn.
Brooklin Maine is a Downeast coastal town surrounded by
Blue Hill Bay to the east,
Jericho Bay to the south, and Eggemoggin Reach to the southwest. Its
location makes the town a mecca for sailing, fishing, lobstering,
boat building, and summer tourism. From the first settlers on Naskeag
Point, the sea has shaped Brooklin's history. Nineteenth-century
archeological digs found relics of the ancient Red Paint People and
Native Americans in Brooklin. In the early 1900s, Col. Adam Wesley
Powell dug artifacts of these people, and later, the famous Norse coin
was found here. In North Brooklin, On Naskeag Point, a
Revolutionary War battle was fought by the local residents. At Center
Harbor, sardines and clam factories made Brooklin rich, and in Haven,
Noah Tibbets started a summer colony of prominent residents. On Flye
Point, another colony was founded on land deeded to the Flye family by
the king of England. Boats were built at Allenís Cove, Herrickís Bay,
Bridges Point, Benjamin River, and Center Harbor. With its numerous
boatyards, the famous Wooden Boat School, and Wooden Boat magazine,
Brooklin has been called the Boatbuilding Capital of the World. Brooklin, Maine is known as
the boat building capital. Bordering Blue Hill, this sweet little
village offers a general store, galleries and lodging. Flye
Point is simply beautiful. Many have chosen Flye Point for their
wedding and many artists are drawn to it. While
touring at Flye Point we captured an artist painting a unique seascape.
