Spend the Day in Historic Alna, Maine

Come visit the countryside of Maine, only minutes from the coast, to experience a very different picture.

Alna is about history, the Head Tide Dam, horse country and farming. We are a town of 700 people living among scenic rolling hills on both sides of the Sheepscot River.

Come spend the day shopping for antiques, country accessories, artwork, quilts, ceramics and furniture (Alna Goods Gallery, Wizard of Odds and Ends, Head Tide Primitives). Enjoy the horses and take a lesson at Rose Wood Stables.

If you are looking for history, check out the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Narrow Gage RR Museum and enjoy a ride on an old steam train. Arrangements can be made to visit our meeting house, one room school houses, or the lovely Head Tide Church by contacting the Town Office at (207) 586-5313.

Stop by the Alna Store for a meal and mementos of the area. Love the outdoors? You can grab a box lunch and enjoy a canoe trip on the Sheepscot with Gary Hayward, or take in the natural beauty of the two SVCA preserves at Bass Falls or along the Trout Brook.

From sunrise to sunset, we think our town offers everyone a great day in the country.
