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.
