About Stonington

Stonington, Maine is a town located in Hancock County.  The area was settled in 1762 and was known as Green's Landing before it incorporated as a town on Febuary 18, 1897.  Green's Landing was originally a part of Deer Isle, Maine, and today the two towns create a dynamic island community.

Stonington offers visitors a look into the unique culture of downeast Maine. Stunning, unspoiled physical beauty abounds on the island and supports commercial and recreational activities. Stonington waters are home to a working fleet of more than 300 lobster boats and, in the summer, recreational boating and kayaking. In the late 1800's granite quarries from the island supplied stone to historic structures including John F. Kennedy's memorial at Arlington National Cemetary.  Today granite is still quarried on the island.

The foundation of the economy remains the lobster and fishing industy, with a unique   sense of place attracting artists and sightseers. In addition to being the state leader in pounds and dollar value of lobster landings, the island hosts an array of hiking trail opportunities, including the Crockett Cove Woods, which consists of 100 acres of self-guiding nature trails and bird watching opportunities. A vibrant working waterfront is present on the island and supplies local restaurants with fresh lobster. The Isle au Haut mail boat travels from Stonington Harbor and provides access to the Isle au Haut station of Acadia National Park.
