Hallowell, Maine’s smallest city also rests on the banks of the Kennebec River. It was settled about 1762. Although once a granite and lumbering community, the Hallowell of today features many delightful and interesting antique shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants in the downtown business district. The small city is classified as a national historic district.
A state-operated boat landing is located on the south end of the city. It is the hub of activities during the summer months as people launch their boats to cruise the beautiful Kennebec all the way to the ocean. It is said of Hallowell that it retains the charm of yesteryear, the flavor of old world simplicity and the warmth of old-fashioned hospitality.
