#Hashtag Hometown of the Week: Patten

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

An early success with lumbering and farming led this town to be the wonderful hometown it is today. Only about 1,000 people reside in Patten but hundreds pass through every year during every season.

With access to Baxter State Park the town is busy in the summer with tourists and locals enjoying the Maine wildlife and wilderness. If you are in town during August be sure to attend the Patten Pioneer Days for a true hometown hoedown! Fall brings hunters for everything from moose to partridge and winter offers a wonderland for snowmobilers.

When visiting this town stay at the historic Bradford House B&B and get a meal at Craig’s Clam Shop (dare we say one of the best take-outs in the state). Also be sure to take some time to stop at the Lumbermen’s Museum! The Lumbermen’s Museum may not sound interesting to some, but this Trip Adviser review says it all:
