Things to See & Do

 

St. Francis Historical Society, Train Station, & Veteran's Memorial

St. Francis was the end of the line on the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad. Rail was a popular method of transport in the early and mid 1900s, and trains hauled everything from people, to pulpwood, to potatoes, and more. In 1936, it cost 35 cents to ride the train into Fort Kent. The last train departed St. Francis in 1990. In 2001, donations were made to restore the turntable and the grounds of the old train station, which is home to the St. Francis Historical Society.

Snowmobiling, ATVing, & Boating

St. Francis and the general area are home to miles of scenic ATV and snowmobile trails. Northern Maine's snowy winters and mild summers make for some of the best weather for this type of activity. We are also home to numerous rivers and streams perfect for boating, canoeing, swimming and fishing.
