Wiscasset was settled in 1663 on the banks of the Sheepscot River, and bills itself as "Maine's prettiest village." Located near the Kennebec River, Wiscasset is the county seat of Lincoln County and is located just south of Augusta. Wiscasset is certainly a historical town, with elegant sea captain's homes that today house antiques and art galleries, old cemeteries, churches and public buildings. Just a few of the interesting places to visit in town are the Musical Wonder House, built in 1852, and formerly a sea captain's home that today houses a collection of thousands of antique music boxes from around the world. Also, the Nickels-Sortwell House is a wonderful example of Federal architecture, and the 1807 Castle Tucker is known for its' extravagant architecture. And, be sure to visit the nearby town of Bath's Maine Maritime Museum. You will find hiking, biking, boating, fishing, birding and antiqueing in the area. And, Wiscasset is just a short drive to Boothbay Harbor and deep-sea fishing, whale watching excursions, sailing, swimming and more. Wiscasset is conveniently located, yet off the beaten path away from the crowds.
