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

Milbridge, once spelled 'Millbridge', has been a beautiful town since 1765. Since that time it has been a great place for those who like a good balance of hard work and playing harder.

The town begin with multiple ship building industries as well as fishing and lobstering. Today the town continues those traditions with many fishermen and lobsterers living in the town now.

Milbridge is also home to the large Wyman Company who is responsible for a large amount of the blueberries and blueberry products across the U.S. It should also be noted these are some of the most scenic blueberry fields you'll ever see!

Speaking of beautiful spots in Milbridge, The Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to spend the day! A coastal vista with a shore view of islands you can visit by boat. This is a great place for wildlife spotting especially birds. This is reportedly the best place in Maine to see whimbrels!

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