Every week we feature a new hometown and share photos and facts using hashtags on social media. This week our #hashtag hometown is Old Town!

Old Town is clearly a town that revolves around water. With the town essentially sitting on an island, it is surrounded by Stillwater stream and the Penobscot River on most sides. This is why the town grew rapidly in the past with the rise of water power.

The name of the town is widely known because of the famous Old Town Canoes made at the factory here. The company has called Old Town Home for more than 100 years!

Old town is a great place to live if you have ties to or are attending UMaine, raising a family, working in Bangor, or if you want to live in a great Maine town!

Here are some photos of Old Town we found on Instagram:
