Edmunds

     Edmunds was first settled in the 1780's. It was incorporated as a town in 1828 but was deorganized in 1938. The Federal Government purchased a great deal of land from the town to establish the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge; this resulted in a  large loss of tax revenue.  In the mid 1880's the town had six small one-room school houses and many small cemeteries, the remains of which still can be found in the area.  The old Methodist Church meeting house was built in 1841 and is located on River Road near the now-removed lower bridge on the Dennys River.

Cobscook Bay State Park Fishing Derby

     Highlights include Cobscook Bay State Park, known for its beautiful campsites, beaches, picnic areas, and a nature trail. An old fire tower is located within the park. In addition to the boat launch in the park, just down the road from the park is another public boat launching facility where local fishermen moor lobster boats, scallop draggers and various other water craft used along the shores and flats to harvest clams, crabs, and periwinkles.  The ramp is a popular place to launch kayaks and other watercraft and to observe seals, bald eagles and other aquatic feeding birds and ducks.

Fred Hartman -- Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge

     Edmunds is also the location of one division of the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge.  The Friends of Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge was started to help the refuge and increase community recognition.  The refuge in general is known for management of the American Woodcock, but there also are numerous walking trails and trout streams for people to enjoy a variety of wildlife.

Edmund's Salt Water Organic Dairy Farm

     

Historically, the abundant supply of timber and the availability of water power combined to make Edmunds the site of many lumber and manufacturing mills.
