Beautiful Jonesport Maine was incorporated in 1832. Born as a seafaring community, the village still retains much of its original character as families today continue the maritime traditions of their ancestors. The Jonesport Historical Society was established in 2003 as a non-profit corporation to preserve the rich history of this special place.
