Be sure to explore Grindstone Neck when visiting Winter
Harbor and Schoodic Peninsula.
There are two special spots where you will have spectacular views
of the surrounding islands and the mountains of Mount
Desert Island. A street takes you to the western side of Grindstone
Neck where you can view Crow Island, Ironbound
Island and others. Grindstone Avenue takes you all the way to
the southern tip called Grindstone
Point where you can view Schoodic Peninsula, the Winter
Harbor Lighthouse, Turtle
Island, Mount Desert Island and several other points of interest.
Grindstone Neck is part of the municipality of Winter Harbor. The
first non-Native American to settle the area was Thomas Frazer in the
late 1700s. Thomas, an African American, setup a salt works company
less than a mile to the east where he sold salt to the passing ships.
The location is now called Frazer
Point in his honor.
