This part of Maine is called simply "The County." The rolling green landscape is a checkerboard of farm fields and small towns, while above, the sky stretches for miles. This is also one of the most culturally distinct regions of Maine. Native Americans, Acadians, and Swedes have called this region home for many generations. Cyclists can learn more about the Acadians at three sites along the lovely 90-mile route: the Tri-cultural Museum in Stockholm, the MusÉe Culturel du Mont-Carmel in Lille (Grand Isle), and the 18th-century Acadian Village just north of Van Buren. The Acadian Village is on the National Register and is the largest historic site in Maine.
