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

Settled way back in 1780, Eddington is named after Johnathan Eddy and is home to about 2,200 people.

The town has some amazing views of things like the Penobscot River, Chemo Pond, and neighboring hills. Eddington is the proud home of The Penobscot Experimental Forest as well as the Boy Scout Camp- Camp Roosevelt.

The town is busiest in what is known as Eddington Village where Rt. 9 and Rt. 46 intersect.  This is a hub for business going to and from Canada as well as travelers and sightseers.
