Welcome to the Castine History Highlights App!

  • <p>Image from the Town of Castine</p>

This project was created by the Castine History Partners, a coalition of non-profits and the town government established to meet the growing demand for information on the history of Castine, Maine.

This project is funded with grants from the Hancock County Fund of the Maine Community Foundation, the Maine Humanities Council, and support from the Castine Community Partners.


Castine has ample free parking for visitors coming to town. The Town Parking Lot is located at the bottom of Main Street overlooking our harbor. There is a three hour time limit during the summer season in this lot and two hours along lower Main Street.

Please Note:

We are currently working with the Penobscot Nation to write a description of their history in Castine. More information will be available soon.
