East Machias’ town center rises on hills flanking both sides of a narrow, boulder-strewn stretch of the East Machias River. A bridge leads from the rail-trail to narrow Mill Park along the opposite bank. A sign lists successive mills that stood here, and old mill parts are displayed, sculpture-like. The village’s two bridges create a nice walking loop. As in neighboring Machias and Machiasport, wonderful federal and Victorian-era architecture is all about. Not to be missed: Washington Academy’s 1823 main building and the soaring 1836 First Congregational Church.
Drive through the town of Machias on a sunny day and you with undoubtably see a collection of dining chairs, maybe a sea captain’s trunk and some moose antlers displayed on the small lawn outside of Machias Bay Antiques and Fine Arts. Make a stop (park across the street and enjoy the falls, bridge and Bad Little Falls Park on the other side while you are at it). Enjoy conversation with the owner, Ray, as you scout out unique treasures that have been hiding in Maine’s darkest attics and oldest homes. (And check out Ray’s beautiful original artwork!)

Unfortunately I’m not a fisher-person and I receive lots of emails asking about fishing in Maine. I finally stumbled across this website. Take a look (they have a great underwater fish video on their home page, too).
You just have to take a look at their website for details about this amazing performance space and the incredible lineup that that have. Well worth a stop if you are traveling to this part of rural Maine. Also an amazing spot for a country wedding.
