Most People Don’t Know These 10 Super Tiny Towns in Maine Exist

Maine is a wild and wonderful state; the kind of place where you can go to really escape from it all. The state is home to some truly remote areas and towns where the moose quite possibly outnumber the residents! We were wondering about the tiniest hidden towns in Maine, so we consulted City-Data, our go-to source for census, income, and residential data for places across the country. According to City-Data, these Maine towns all have under 1,000 full-time residents. In terms of trends, the Pine Tree State has seen a slight uptick in residents in the last decade; however, it’s still among the top 10 *least* populated states in the country. All of this is to say, Vacationland remains a largely unexplored American treasure, but the following 10 hidden towns in Maine are a great place to start exploring!
