Acton Maine Real Estate & Community
About Acton Maine 04001
Acton is bounded on the north by Newfield, on the east by Shapleigh, on the south by Lebanon, and on the west by the towns of Wakefield and Milton Mills, NH. It is 85 miles from Boston and 105 miles from Maine's capital, Augusta.
With its abundant timber, fertile farmland, and extensive bodies of water, Acton Maine grew quickly and prospered. Today many local farmers work the same land and live in the same homes as their forefathers.
Each summer, families throughout New England migrate to the numerous lakes that lie within the Shapleigh and Acton area, and motorists enjoy the the area's rolling hills, stone walls, picturesque mountains, and sparkling lake views. Nestled between the rocky Maine coastline and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Shapleigh and Acton are charming, historic towns that capture the spirit of Maine and "The Way Life Should Be."
The quote above is from Author Bio: Debbie Petersen, president of the Acton-Shapleigh Maine Historical Society, has compiled images from the society's archives and the private collections of the towns' residents to bring Shapleigh and Acton together once again between the covers of this book. Petersen is donating all her proceeds to the Acton Shapleigh Historical Society.
