Travel Through Time: Camden’s Historic Homes and Harbor

Starting and ending at Camden’s Village Green, take a stroll with us through the Chestnut Street Historic District to see the homes and hear the stories of Camden’s first settlers, ship builders and patriots. The architecture of these homes mirrors the history of the town from the early Federal period into the mid and late 19th century. You will enjoy views of Penobscot Bay, the Curtis Island Lighthouse and the hills and harbor while your guide shares tales of the War of 1812 and how it led to Maine statehood.

This 1.5 hour loop on neighborhood streets will include a restroom stop. Comfortable shoes and water are recommended.


Outdoor walk, street route with minimal sidewalks.
