Waukeag Neck, Maine
Waukeag Neck is located on the coast of Maine just south of Sullivan and
Downeast of Ellsworth. Sorrento is
the primary town occupying the land mass.
Waukeag was a word used by the Penobscot and Maliseet tribes to describe
a natural glacial formation called a “kame” that resembled
a horse's back. A kame is a hill or mound of gravel and sand formed
by streams on the bottom of slow moving glaciers. When the glaciers
melted, they left these deposits throughout Maine. Waukeag meant “a
horseback in a place where the tide runs out strong” and referred
to the kame in the great tidal stream that fills Sullivan Harbor, Sullivan
Falls north through Taunton Bay and Hog Bay in Franklin.
Sorrento, at Waukeag Neck's tip,
is about 14 miles (23 km) from Ellsworth and
14 miles (23 km) from the entrance to the Schoodic
Peninsula section of Acadia National Park.
