Maine is full of history. Much of it comes in the form of museums and landmarks found throughout the state. But in a state as old as this one, it’s not surprising that a lot of our history can be found in every day spots as well. Coffee shops are housed in buildings built in the 1800s, bridges have been helping people cross rivers since before the state was a state and hotels have been welcoming guests since before Maine was a real vacation destination. This one, recently named as the most famous in the state by Elle Decor, is a great example!
