Mackworth Island

Last weekend I stopped by Mackworth Island in Falmouth for some photos. As noted on the Portland Trails page for the Mackworth Island Trail, the 1.25 mile loop around the island, the island was once the home of James Phinney Baxter and son (and Maine Governor in the 1920's) Percival Baxter. The island is currently the home of the Baxter School for the Deaf.

Zoomed southward towards Fort Gorges and Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth.

  1. Thanks for these photos. Can you still find small "fairy houses" under the trees on Mackworth?

  2. Thanks for the comment, Lee Ann! Yep, there are still some fairy houses under the trees. I might have a few shots of them that I will post eventually.

  3. Corey, thank you! I'll keep my eyes open for them!
