In July 1998, the newest municipality was added to the county, the Town of Frye Island, whose residents voted to leave the Town of Standish, and form their own municipality.
Freeport is well known for its more then 110 shops ranging from brand-name designer outlets to quaint Maine artisans and specialty shops. It is also home to the world-renowned out-door sports retail giant, L.L. Bean, founded by Leon Leonwood Bean in 1912. But shopping is only the beginning of a visit to Freeport.
In Cape Elizabeth, Portland Headlight - Maine's first lighthouse was commissioned to be built in 1787. Opened in 1791, President George Washington appointed Captain Joseph Greenleaf as keeper with an annual salary the first two years of only fishing and farming rights on the site. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a native of Portland, was a frequent visitor to the lighthouse and wrote his poem, The Lighthouse, to express his passion for the place. If you visit Cape Elizabeth, don't miss the chance to see this most famous and visited lighthouse in New England.
