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

When you enter the town you will see a welcome sign with two oxen on it because one of Stetson's claims to fame is that it is the birthplace of two of the world's largest oxen! The town was incorporated in 1831 and soon became busy with grist mills, saw mills a carriage factory and even a cheese factory!

Stetson has beautiful waterfront views of Etna Pond and is a popular place for kayaking and fishing. But it's most popular water recreation area is Pleasant Lake or Pleasant Pond. The beautiful body of water is a very popular place in the town and its shores are home to many seasonal and year round residents.

The town is also home to many farms with all types of animals. One of the more well known farms in the area is Dragonfly Farms and Winery offering some popular locally made wines.

Here are some of the great photos of Stetson we found on Instagram:
