Welcome to the Bangor Region
The residents of the Bangor region once called the area the “Lumber Capital of the World.” In the early part of the 1800s the area housed more than 300 sawmills; remnants of this golden era can still be seen in the mansions of the Broadway region. Just north of the city is the Indian Island Reservation, where about 500 members of the Penobscot, once the largest tribe of the Abenaki Confederacy, still live.
It is the mix of infrastructure, deep rooted traditions and state of the art university facilities that make this region a hotbed of culture to be enjoyed by visitors year-round.
