Great things are happening every day in Limestone, Maine, thanks to extraordinary individuals who choose to live and work in our little town. Our deep agricultural roots have seeded the foundation for many thriving iconic Limestone entities, like the academically advanced Maine School of Science and Mathematics, the remarkable vehicular ingenuity embodied by the Maine Military Authority and the multifaceted training underprivileged youths from all over New England receive at the Loring Job Corps Center, helping them achieve the better futures they've dreamt of.
These nationally-renowned successes choose Limestone as their home, and it's not very hard to see why. Limestone's a place where the world slows down – where the community pours out to cheer on the varsity squads and the cashiers at our mom and pop shops still know every customer by name. Our streets are clean; our water's pure and abundant volunteerism keeps community spirits high.
There's no better way to dip your toes into Limestone's character than gearing up for a camping trip to Trafton Lake, the hub of Limestone's famed Fourth of July celebration. You'll find Trafton Lake just three miles outside our quaint downtown, next to open fields filled with wildflowers in the spring and neatly planted rows of potatoes during the growing season. Limestone's long rumored to grow the world's best potatoes, and the annual crop of tubers first put Aroostook County on the map.
Limestone's maintained its historic values while embracing today's technology. While students at the magnet school make robots out of old printer parts and educators teach geography using Smart Boards, residents of all ages still look forward to the community sorority's annual Strawberry Shortcake Sale in July and bundle up to brave the wintery chill while watching the Annual Light Parade in November. Aroostook County has some of the best snowmobile trails in the world, including those meticulously groomed by volunteers in our community. For those who enjoy nature and spending time with loved ones, there's always something to do in Limestone.
We welcome you to Maine and, if you stop by Limestone, welcome home.
