Saint Croix Island International Historic Site


P.O. Box 247 Calais, ME US 04619



Saint Croix Island International Historic Site is Maine's second national park area. Only 120 miles from Acadia National Park, it's the only International Historic Site in the National Park system. It protects the island where 79 Frenchmen suffered a grueling winter during their attempt to establish a permanent settlement in 1604.

On the accessible interpretive trail, visitors discover the significance of the settlement, its legacy of French culture in North America today, and a superb view of the island! Interpretive panels and bronze statues help tell the story.

In summer, a bilingual park ranger offers interpretive walks and cultural demonstrations. Visit the park's website for dates of operation and a schedule of ranger programs.
