"WHERE WE HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!"
PARKS and HIKING
ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT
Art galleries and a variety of special shows and fairs feature works by area artists and craftspeople, reflecting talent from painting to sculpting and quilting to carving. Local history comes alive at museums around the area.
The Piscataquis Valley Fair, and old-fashioned agricultural and free exhibition, signals the end of summer, but not before the many churches and clubs please public penchants and palates with eagerly anticipated bazaars and suppers.
Fall, shining with splendid color, is celebrated with afternoon foliage rides, crisp walks in the woods, topped by a mug of warm, locally-mad apple cider to make an action-packed weekend with the spotlight on fun and hospitality.
COMMUNICATIONS and TRAVEL
HEALTH and EDUCATION
A modern hospital, area clinics, long term care facilities, and social agencies staffed by skilled professionals provide a full range of medical and counseling services, including health and consumer education programs.
Schools in Southern Piscataquis County are the heart of the community. The buildings are used day and night -- for classes, performances and meetings -- and the doors are open for a lifetime of learning opportunities.
Libraries also have a special place in community life and communication. Regardless of size, libraries are a source of pride to area towns and villages, serving as refuges for solitude and reflection and centers for learning activity and community information.
