Coastal Town with a slow-paced, small-town, New England feel.

The Community - Kittery, Maine
Kittery is the first town you come to in Maine, just over the border and over the bridge from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Kittery was the first incorporated town in Maine in 1647. With amazing history dating back to 1623, Kittery was first settled and established as a fishery. Kittery encompasses Badger Island and the Isle of Shoals off shore from Portsmouth Harbor. Kittery is a great shopping town, with Kittery Outlets, but there is a waterfront side to the small town of Kittery Point that makes it deserving as a vacation spot and a nice place to reside.

Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Seavey's Island
Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNS) is one of four remaining naval shipyards in the nation. Centrally located about 50 miles from Boston, Massachusetts, Portland, Maine and Manchester, New Hampshire, at the southernmost tip of Maine, the Shipyard fully encompasses Seavey Island that sits at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. This federally-owned island is across the harbor from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with access to the mainland by two bridges that connect to Kittery, Maine.
