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

Blue Hill was built on shipbuilding and today is a popular place for tourism, sightseeing, and the annual Blue Hill Fair.

The town is home to more than 2,600 people and is a popular place for 'transplants' or people from other states to move to. Even though the town has that small, tight knit community feel, it is very welcoming.

History buffs love this area as it was settled in the mid 1700's and has survived on it's industry as well as small businesses. Local cemeteries even have graves belonging to revolutionary war soldiers!

Are you from or currently living in Blue Hill? What do you love about your town?! Let us know!
