Trescott is a rural seaside community of a little over 300 full time residents. It covers about 25 square miles near the most northeastern tip of the US. With such a small year-round population, Trescott has been a part of Maine’s 10 million acre unorganized territory and has no local government since the town de-organized in 1945. It is regulated by the State of Maine and the Division of LUPC (Land Use Planning Commission). Taxes are lower than otherwise typical in Maine and children living within an unorganized township attend school in nearby towns.
Trescott is informally divided into north and south regions. The phrase “you can’t get there from here” somewhat applies when traveling from North Trescott to South Trescott and having to leave town in order to get to the other part of town! In the Southern part of Trescott is the typical Bold Coast of Downeast Maine with sheer cliffs dropping down to the crashing surf below with a few coves, brooks and estuaries at sea level. There are a number of preserved parcels along this rocky coastline open to the public for exploration and enjoyment. The Northern portion offers a number of bays and inner streams and brooks to be enjoyed.
Washington County is a lot of things. It is the most gorgeous, has the deepest cargo port, the longest coastline including the Bold Coast, the highest tides, and produces the most lobster and clam landings. What Washington County does not have is lots of traffic lights (only three in the whole county), an interstate, a Red Lobster Restaurant, or poisonous snakes. Known as the Sunrise County, Washington County welcomes the first rays of sun to shine on the US each day. With tides averaging between 18-22’; the bold, salt-sprayed shoreline of Downeast Maine offers deserted beaches, quiet hiking trails, rugged cliffs and unnamed beauty. Truly, one of the last frontiers on the Eastern seaboard, one doesn’t have to go far to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. With 2 cities, 44 towns and a population of approximately 32,000, Washington County is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined.
