#Hometown of the Week: Frankfort [PHOTOS]

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

Even though it is one of those towns many just pass though, it actually has quite a bit to offer. The most breathtaking being the views. As the oldest town settled on the Penobscot River in the 1760’s Frankfort offers quite a bit of riverfront property and scenic spots also including Marsh Bay.

You can also take in the view of the river atop one of two mountains in the town, Mt. Waldo and Mosquito Mountain. Both mountains have long histories including granite quarries, local legends and even some tragic accidental deaths. In fact Mount Waldo was originally called Mt. Misery after 2 young boys climbed the mountain in 1783 and perished in a snow storm. Granite from the Mt. Waldo quarry can be found in the Washington Monument, Brooklyn Bridge and even the Empire State Building.

The towns landmarks include the green Brooklyn Road footbridge, the Frankfort Dam, the Mt. Waldo Quarry, the Post Office/ Town Office, The Veterans Memorial Park, and the Franklin Treat Mansion on the corner of the Main Rd 1A and Loggin Rd. The Treat Mansion was even featured on the popular show ‘This Old House’ after being abandoned for many years. Some even claim the house is haunted and this is why ownership of the home gets turned over so often.

Here are some videos from YouTube and photos from Instagram we found featuring #hometown Frankfort!:
