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

If you want to live near the interstate as well as the beautiful wilderness that is Baxter State Park, Medway is the town for you! The town has had a few names including Passagumpus Plantation and Nicatou, but the most modern is Medway. The town's name meaning is simple as the town is about midway between the northern tip of the state and Bangor.

Medway gives you the best of all worlds with access to recreation areas in Aroostook County and home and life necessities in nearby Millinocket. The town is home to the East Branch of the Penobscot as well as the Penobscot itself. Both are great for recreation and relaxation.

Here are some great photos of Medway we found on Instagram:
