Welcome to North Haven, Maine

One of Maine's fourteen unbridged island communities, lies in Penobscot Bay approximately twelve miles from the midcoast city of Rockland. It is served by a Maine Department of Transportation ferry making three round trips a day from Rockland. The island's ferry link is of course dependent on the whims of wind and tide.

Its year-round population of 355 (2010 Census) swells in July and August with the return of families who own or rent seasonal homes on the Island. In 2014, North Haven celebrates the 167th anniversary of its name day (and its 168th year of independence from Vinalhaven).

Please remember that the burn pile is restricted to brush and untreated wood. (Latex painted construction debris is allowed.) Access to and use of the burn pile is primarily on an "honor system". The Transfer Station staff cannot continuously monitor the pile. The discarding of noxious and toxic debris which ends up being burned may result in drastic action by the state Department of Environmental Protection, up to and including permanent closure.
