Park
“Today, the skeletons of a blast furnace and charcoal kiln stand silent, lone remnants of the Katahdin Iron Works. In the past, these structures pulsed with activity as part of Maine's only nineteenth century iron works operation. Here the fires of the blast furnace flames non-stop for as long as a year at a time, glowing against the night sky. Smoke poured from this charcoal kiln and many other s like it. Mule, oxen or horse-drawn wagons rattled by constantly carrying ore, pig iron or wood. ”

“Loose Moose Bar is the more casual side of the restaurant, offering a variety of pub foods, a great selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. They often have live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. Fredericka's is the more upscale dining room, offering a full menu, beautiful antique decor and excellent food. The broccoli bake and cinnamon loafs are famous!”

“The view of Katahdin from Abol is pretty spectacular. The bridge crossing the Penobscot has a walking bridge that serves as a snowmobile crossing in the winter and a popular tourist spot in the summer. It is a great place to stop, check out the store and snap some photos of Katahdin. If you come at the right time, you may also spot some white water rafters heading down the river. ”
