A description of principal highway routes, together with an alphabetical gazetteer of towns and place names in the State of Maine, including notes of interest on each, plus outstanding places to stop, eat and shop.

A classified index of advertisers will be found on the next six pages. It should be remembered that in Maine, as in most of New England, "town" is geographically a "township", averaging some 36 square miles. Thus several village or town centers may be included in named "town". Most such village centers, usually highway junctions, relate to the name of the town, but with the prefixes North, South, East, or West. In most such cases notation is made under the name of the Town itself. Village centers with names different from the town are separately listed.

It is assumed that motorists will be using any standard highway map of the State of Maine. The purpose of this booklet is purely informative, with the hope that its use will make for interesting and enjoyable trips through the State of Maine.
