In the early 1900s, the town of Houlton was one of the 10 richest communities in the United States because of its thriving logging and potato industries. You can still see many of the Victorian mansions that were constructed during this era, and the town’s Market Square District contains an impressive collection of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


Houlton is also centrally located among the many snowmobiling and ATV riding trails in the Northeast. You can also go canoeing and primitive camping along the region’s lakes and streams.


Local attractions include the mysterious "Boy with Leaking Boot" sculpture—it is one of 26 such sculptures that exist in the world, but its original sculptor is unknown. Houlton is also part of the world’s largest solar system model (Pluto, to be exact), which begins in Presque Isle and ends 40 miles away at the Houlton Visitor Information Center.
