Lubec, Maine is the easternmost town in the United States. It sits a stone’s throw from Campobello, Canada on the ice-free Passamaquoddy Bay, with its 20-foot tides. Settled in 1775, it soon became a robust fishing town. Early inhabitants fished the local waters teeming with herring, pollock, sardines, and shellfish. By 1820 there were shipbuilders and over 20 smokehouses in Lubec producing 50 to 60 thousand boxes of fish annually. Population reached a peak of 3,363 by 1910. However, in 1970 only two sardine factories remained, and the population declined to today’s 1,258.
