The Only Bridge Connecting Deer Isle To Mainland Maine Has A Fascinating History
With more than 4,500 islands off the coast of Maine, the issue of accessibility is not especially foreign. While many of the islands are uninhabited, others are far enough away that a ferry or other means of water transportation is the only link between island life and the mainland. Deer Isle has a bridge, but that wasn’t always the case. This is the story of that bridge!
