“A Hobo’s mark on a barn door is now a popular winery’s logo. The bridge over the Ducktrap River is actually two bridges. Our state has more moose per mile than any of the other lower 48 states. Maine’s oldest town was incorporated 125 years before the birth of the United States. There’s a building in Columbia Falls that looks like a blueberry and one in Wells that looks like a hunk of cheese. AND, Maine is the only U.S. state with one syllable.”
