while in town
This vibrant downtown is the birthplace of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay and an active working waterfront on beautiful Penobscot Bay. Just a block away from the water lays Main Street, which boasts many galleries, shops and the Farnsworth Museum whose collection of American art celebrates many famous artists’ connections with Maine. In 2010 Rockland was designated as a National Trust for Historic Preservation Distinctive Destination. See also: Rockland Main Street and Penobscot Bay Region Chamber.
