Georgetown & Arrowsic
The historic islands of Georgetown and Arrowsic sit side by side on the coast of MidCoast Maine, linked to the mainland by roads and bridges. Centuries ago, English settlers arrived to fish and farm. But they didn’t stay long. Frequent wars with Native people and the French emptied the settlements, sometimes for years. But eventually, the wars ended and the islands became the inviting, tranquil places they are today.
