Information About Maine
Maine is located in the New England region of the northeastern United States and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, New Hampshire and the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. Prior to European settlement, Maine was inhabited by Algonquin speaking tribes for thousands of years. The first settlement was by the French in 1604, and in 1607 the first English settlement was established by the Plymouth company. Maine is the easternmost state in the US and is the least densely populated state in the United States east of the Mississippi River. Approximately 83% of the land is forested, and was given the nickname the Pine Tree State. A great amount of Maine’s geomorphology is a result of extended glacial activity which occurred at the end of the last ice age. Some glacial erratics are Somes Sound and Bubble Rock which is located in Acadia National Park which is the only national park in Maine.
The most populous city in Maine is Portland. Lewiston is the second largest city in the state. Neither cities rank in the top two hundred most populous cities in the United States. Maine is nicknamed the “Pine Tree State” referencing the abundance of forested areas in the state. A pine tree can be found on the state seal of Maine as well as the state flag of Maine.
Maine is home to a variety of firsts. Margaret Chase Smith was the first woman elected to the office of the United States Senate as well as the first woman to hold position in both houses of Congress. In the latter half of the twentieth century, the first American atomic submarine and the first communications satellite were launched in Maine.
The US Census Bureau estimates that the population of Maine is approximately 1,330,000 residents as of 2010. The most densely populated area of Maine is the greater Portland metro area, which accounts for about 40% of the state’s residents. Maine has the highest percentage of French Americans out of any state in the US. The total gross state product of Maine in 2010 was $50 billion. 30 institutions of higher learning reside in Maine which include the University of Maine, Bowdoin College, Colby College and Bates College to name a few.
