22 acres of land for sale in Bath, Maine, United States
Merrymeeting Bay is an unspoiled environmental treasure located just 30 minutes from Portland and minutes from historic Bath, Maine. Covering 9,600 acres, it is considered 1 of the largest and most significant freshwater tidal ecosystems in the country. One of only 4 places on the planet where 2 major separate watersheds converge, the others are the San Joaquin Delta, the Euphrates Delta and the Ganges Delta. This confluence of the Kennebec and Androscoggin Rivers, as well as 4 smaller rivers, has created a landmark that has played a major role in the economies, agricultural and military history since pre-revolutionary war times. Indians 1st inhabited the bay hunting and fishing as well as introducing the wild rice which still grows abundantly on the shoreline between Chop Point and the Fryee Islands. The British Navy used the region as a primary source for masts for ocean going vessels, and over 3,000,000 tons of "white gold," or river ice, has been harvested from the river over the years.
