Old Canada Road
For generations, the preferred thoroughfare for those traveling between Maine and Québec, the section of the corridor known as the Old Canada Road, winds alongside the Kennebec River and Wyman Lake. Looking for a better life and a way to support their growing families, thousands of French Canadians journeyed south along the road in the 1880s to work in Maine’s woods, mills and factories.
Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway travels along Route 201 through Maine’s vast forests from Solon to the Canadian border. Small villages such as Bingham and Jackman offer relaxing places to stop for food or shop for that uniquely Maine gift. Spectacular foliage, abundant moose, and other wildlife make for enjoyable fall touring.
