Most People Don’t Know About The History Of This Beautiful Maine Island

Maine has over 3,000 island dotting it’s beautiful coastline. From the big ones to the ones that barely have room for someone to stand, each one has its own history. We love taking the ferry to Peaks Island, Vinalhaven and Monhegan but there are some much smaller island that offer a lot in the way of beauty and calm. House Island in Maine, located just off of Portland, is a great example of Vacationland’s island-life. It’s small, with just a few places for visitors to stay. But, it comes with history that most people are not aware of.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
