Town of Brooklin, P. O. Box 219, Brooklin, ME
Author E.B. White was so fond of his chosen hometown that he tried to throw as many people off the track as he could. White described Brooklin as “a New England coastal town, somewhere between Nova Scotia and Cuba.” Those who persist and find Brooklin are rewarded by the town’s beauty, its many boat builders (WoodenBoat Magazine is based here) and the presence of an authentic general store. Summer visitors enjoy the work of local artists, a farmers’ market and the courses offered at the Wooden Boat School.
Brooklin has a small village center, complete with shops, a restaurant and post office. A town landing can be found at Naskeag Point, a short drive from the village.
The area is of some significance, archeologically, as vestiges of the Red Paint People, Abenaki and Woodland tribes have been unearthed here. The town gained a measure of fame when an 11th century Norse coin was discovered in 1957, indicating that Europeans may have traded in the area 500 years before Columbus.
