#Hashtag Hometown of the Week: Dover-Foxcroft
Every week we will feature a new hometown and share photos and facts using hashtags on social media. This week our #hashtag hometown is Dover-Foxcroft.
Dover-Foxcroft may be the biggest, small town in Maine.The population is over 4,000 but with tons of local community events and festivals the not so small town still has that feel. The town was originally two, separated by the Piscataquis River, and grew quickly due to the busy mills, factories and tanneries.
Some of the biggest draws to the town are the beautiful bodies of water like the Piscataquis River, and Sebec Lake, which is easily accessed in Peaks- Kenny State Park. The annual Piscataquis Valley Fair is another favorite as well as the newer but very popular Maine Whoopie Pie Festival. Whoopie Pies aren't the only pies Dover-Foxcroft is famous for! In 2014 the American Pizzareia Appreciation Society awarded the town with the 'Pizza Town USA 2014' title because of the overwhelming ratio of pizzarias to residents.
