Live, Work, Shop, and Play the Four Seasons
Washington County is one of the largest counties in Maine. Picturesque harbors dotted with fishing boats, meandering rivers, historic sites pre-dating the Revolutionary War, and bustling small towns create an unforgettable experience for travelers.
Fresh water lakes, rivers, and streams provide homes to a large variety of wildlife. Saltwater bays and tidal areas provide habitats for many bird species.. Ocean vistas abound on hiking trails in the area, and boating and kayaking are popular water sports. Our natural resources offer a bounty of seafood, blueberries, and balsam products.
Whether you're relocating to the Machias Bay Area or are exploring our many opportunities as a visitor, the entire community welcomes you.

Eyes closed, we hear the whistle again. The old train is coming around the bend. It heralds with gratitude those who have contributed nearly $20,000 to date to the restoration of the old Machias Station we call Station 98.
Station 98 is listed on the National Registry of Historic Sites. We have started a scrapbook and would appreciate receiving photos you may have of loved ones coming back from war, going off to college, or of visitors arriving by train.
If you would like to make a contribution to this effort, please mail your donation to Machias Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 606, Machias, ME 04654. Your contributions are tax deductible.
