Thomaston is a delightful little town, located approximately 80 northeast of Portland, near the Camden Hills State Park. A quaint boat building town, Thomaston is full of beautiful old sea captain's homes and antiques and specialty shops. A part of High, Main and Knox Streets in Thomaston is a designated National Historic District. The Maine Watercraft Museum in Thomaston is an "in the water, hands-on" eclectic display of antique watercraft. The museum also has a collection of many of the last surviving examples of some of Maine's well known boat-building companies, and also works of some of Maine's most highly respected artisans. Thomaston is near many of the Midcoast Maine attractions, such as beaches, lighthouses, whale watching, boating and sailing and other quaint fishing villages. Just 13 miles south of Thomaston is the town of Tenants Harbor. This is a quintessential Maine fishing village, its harbor full of lobster boats, clapboard houses, a church with a steeple and a general store. It's also a favorite of artists, so there are lots of galleries and studios to browse. Thomaston is also the home of the Thomaston Place Auction Gallery, one of New England's premier auction facilities with a wide range of services for both locals and visitors.

Thomaston Weather & Climate

The southern coast of Maine near the Penobscot Bay has very comfortable summers and falls, cold winters with frequent thaws and late, changeable springs. Summers are mild to cool by most people's standards, with very few summer nights too warm and humid for sleeping. Autumn has the greatest number of sunny days along the coast and is perfect for fall sightseeing. Winters are cold, but not as severe as the northeastern part of the state along the Canadian border. The White Mountains, to the northwest, keep considerable snow from reaching the Portland area and also help moderate the temperature. Normal precipitation is remarkably uniform throughout the year. Winds are generally light with the strongest being in the months of March and November. Temperatures well below freezing are reported each year, and cold waves sometimes come along with strong winds. Blizzards are possible but infrequent in Maine.
