The city of Calais, located in the eastern most region of the state was once a leading port city in the building of large sailing vessels that would carry lumber products to a growing country. Many elegant homes from that era grace the city streets and can be found on the Historic Walking Guide that has been printed by the St. Croix Historical Society and is available at Greystone.

St. Croix Island International Historic Site South of Calais in the town of Red Beach is the interpretation site for St. Croix Island, the first European Settlement north of Florida in 1604. From that site you can see the island on the beautiful St. Croix River which is the boundary between Maine, and New Brunswick, Canada.
Bronze statues and storyboards tell the story of their ill-fated winter on the island, and of their relationship with the People of the Dawn, the native Passamaquoddy Tribe. Bronze statue of Native American at St. Croix Island Interpretive Site
