Houlton is the county seat of Aroostook and is known as “Shiretown.” This is the point where U. S. Route 2 begins (or ends), and it is here that the Pine Tree Trail heads north on U. S. Route 1. Houlton serves as the headquarters of the federally recognized Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians

This town is a major service center for Southern Aroostook County and surrounding areas.  With a border crossing here, it is a frequent destination for Canadian shoppers. And as the Aroostook County seat, it serves those needing to take care of county business. 

Friendly people and a beautiful landscape make Houlton a great place to stop and rest or stay for a few days to enjoy the peace and tranquility that only Maine can deliver!
