The Alexander Art Trail

The Alexander Art Trail, the largest hand-carved, outdoor sculpture collection in Maine, awaits the harried traveler along a serene path through the woods.

Part museum, part gallery and part fairy wonderland, the trail is a collection of more than two dozen life-size, hand-carved figures, scattered along a winding, wooded path. Dozens of local artists have also  loaned their works to the trail. It is a must-see for Way DownEast visitors.

The Alexander Art Trail accepts donations while visting and through PayPal if you would like to make a donation online. Thank you again for your support.

The Powder House, built by the British in 1814 during their 1814-1818 occupation of Fort Sullivan, renamed Fort Sherbrooke during that time

Raye's Mustard Mill Museum

Raye’s Mustard Mill is a working museum in the island community of Eastport, Maine, and the last remaining traditional stone ground mustard mill in North America.

Through many collaborations and much due diligence, the idea to formalize the mustard mill’s long-time status as an unofficial working museum was born and brought to fruition to ensure the last-of-its-kind mill is preserved and its historic and authentic manufacturing process can be experienced by visitors, tourists and students for generations to come.
