Few People Know These Unconventional International Borders In Maine Even Exist

Just like the rest of the country, getting into Canada from Maine means stopping to show passports, answering questions and in some cases getting out of the car to chat with border control. This experience is typical… unless you live in one small town in Northern Maine. Here, the border actually runs THROUGH the neighborhood. You can sit in your Canadian backyard and then cook a meal in your American kitchen.
