Downeast Maine is on the north end of the coastline of Vacationland. To me, this is the real deal and what rural Maine is all about, not the commercial four color glossy propaganda on the more affluent, tourist driven sections of the rock bound coast. Danforth Maine is two townships, a large land mass that borders Aroostook County to the north.

We try to help put the town of any size on the map.
The Washington County town named after Thomas Danforth. Who exactly was Thomas Danforth this small Maine town’s namesake? In 1930 the population swelled to 1467 and judging by the quality of the housing design, this railroad rich town was an important train route junction.

But getting off in Lincoln Maine and accessing RT 169 to come into Danforth is another travel way to consider. So is heading up US RT 2A, the old Bangor Road used long before Interstate 95 came into being for vehicle travel use. Next try heading over through Wytipitlock or Haynesville Maine might be a good choice for road map options.
US RT 1 heads down from Houlton Maine too which is one busy highway that takes you Downeast. Land a float plane on East Grand or other lakes in Danforth Maine if you have a pilot’s license.
