Welcome to the Maine Tours website
The puurpose of this website is to provide online “tours” of streets in the more or less densely built up village portions of towns, showing images and giving the history of current and former homes, stores, and other buildings.
You can help by e-mailing information (especially scanned images) about your town to firstname.lastname@example.org or by traditional mail to “Maine Tours c/o V. F. Thomas Co.; 167 Thorne Mountain Rd.; Canton, ME 04221”. Images of stores, homes, or other buildings that no longer exist (e.g., torn down or burned) as well as old photos of various streets in a town are of particular interest.
A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.
Below is an alphabetical list of Maine's counties for which one or more towns have a tour posted on this website. Click on any county and you will be taken to a list of those towns. (Currently only Canton has been posted, and its tour web pages are under construction, partly as a prototype for other towns and partly in preparation for Canton's bicentennial in 2021.)
