Visit our Corner of America
Welcome to the beautiful "Heart of the St. John Valley." The Greater Madawaska area is well known for its friendly people and great hospitality. Serving as the center of Acadian culture in Maine, we have a lot to offer our guests. Visit our neighbor across the border, Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada.
Visit the historic site along the breathtaking St. John River where our ancestors first stepped foot in northern Maine. The spot is marked with a huge cross, erected at the location where Acadians landed after fleeing from their Nova Scotia homeland in 1785 to avoid being deported by the British. Experience the history and proud heritage of the people immortalized in the famous Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem " Evangeline" when you tour the Tante Blanche Museum, or attend any of the spectacular Acadian Festivals in late June. Madawaska is home to many cultural and historical significant sites, all of which tell the story of the French-Acadian settlers. Come witness it for yourself.
