Things to do: sightseeing
Calais is a city in Washington County, Maine, United States. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 3,123. The city has three United States border crossings (also known as ports of entry) over the St. Croix River bordering St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada. Calais has been a city of commerce and is recognized as the primary shopping center of eastern Washington County and of Charlotte County, New Brunswick. Retail, service, and construction businesses are the primary components of the Calais economy.HistoryThe St. Croix River and its area were first explored by Samuel de Champlain when he and his men spent a winter on St. Croix Island in 1604. The first permanent settler was Daniel Hill of Jonesboro, who arrived in 1779, and with others built the first sawmill in 1782. On June 27, 1789, the Massachusetts General Court sold the township to Waterman Thomas for 19¢ an acre (approx. $2.30 an acre in 2006 dollars). Early occupations included farming, hunting and ship building.
