Welcome to the Village

Over the years, East Blue Hill, Maine has been home to many families. We’ve built homes, raised children, farmed the land and sailed its waters.  This is a village that is rich in local history and talent, founded by fishermen, ship builders, carpenters, home builders, industrious woodsmen and stone cutters, healers, artists, merchants and farmers and their families. Today, equally hardworking and skilled people are drawn to the beauty and sense of community that the village offers its families, be they full-time or part-time residents.

These pages are available to residents and visitors alike to provide information on events, community governance, and opportunities in East Blue Hill, Maine. Participate, contribute, visit.  Welcome to the Village.
