Welcome to North Haven, Maine

One of Maine's fourteen unbridged island communities, lies in Penobscot Bay approximately twelve miles from the midcoast city of Rockland. It is served by a Maine Department of Transportation ferry making three round trips a day from Rockland. The island's ferry link is of course dependent on the whims of wind and tide.

Its year-round population of 355 (2010 Census) swells in July and August with the return of families who own or rent seasonal homes on the Island. In 2014, North Haven celebrates the 167th anniversary of its name day (and its 168th year of independence from Vinalhaven).

Photos for Town Report

Photographers, please submit some photos for the 2016 Town Report. Printer deadline is 2/10. We need a good cover shot, which can, depending on the photo, be in landscape mode which will then wrap around the booklet. Ratio is about 4:3 (12" x 9" for the open cover). Considerations: center of interest should be in the lower right hand side so that the text can lie against a less busy portion of the photo. We could also use a portrait mode front cover with a 2:3 ratio (6" x 9") and either leave the back cover blank, or use a second 2:3 portrait mode photo. Lots of options. In any case, the photo should effective in b & w. Please send to nhadmin@midcoast.com or bring in a thumb drive. We can use other photo submissions throughout the Report, depending on how the layout shapes up. Thanks.
