Photos of beautiful Sheepscot, Maine.

Welcome to Sheepscot, Maine! Sheepscot is rich in history going back to the 1600's. It sets on the tidal Sheepscot River, and is famous for it's Reversing Falls. This falls was used to power a mill until 1906, at which time the mill that was there burned to the ground and was not replaced. Now the falls is used by sports kayakers to practice their skills.

Chickadee House is at least 150 years old, and is situated on a small hill which overlooks the cove that the falls empties into.

This first photo is Chickadee House, and was taken in June of 2004.

This next photo was taken in the early 1900's. It was taken slightly above Chickadee House, looking towards the village. Chickadee House is the white house in the foreground. At the time, the porch was not added on yet. The porch was built later using beams from the old school house that set further up the hill.

This next photo was taken in Jan, 2004, from the second floor of Chickadee House, looking towards the village. This is much the same view as the previous photo.

This next photo is just below Chickadee House, heading into the village, looking between two neighboring houses at the cove.

And a little further down the road, looking at the cove...

The Sheepscot River splits in the village .. one split continues on as the Sheepscot, and the other split becomes the Dyer River. There is a bridge over the Sheepscot just before it splits, bringing together the towns of Alna and Newcastle. There is also a bridge at the very beginning of the Dyer which connects to Dyer Neck. There is a great farm house at the edge of Dyer Neck which raises sheep, which makes for some very picturesque views!!
The next few pictures are standing on the bridge which separates Alna and Newcastle.
