Somesville is the oldest community on Mount Desert Island. It's a picturesque village located at the northern end of Somes Sound and dates back to 1761. Somesville is not a township, but is actually part of the municipality of Mount Desert in Northeast Harbor. Somes Sound, located at Somesville, is the only fjord on the East Coast of the U.S., and if viewed by air, looks as if a giant hand scooped out the land of two north and south aligned gouges. A huge, mile-high, slow moving glacier formed these "gouges". When the glacier finally retreated, it left mountaintops, lakes, many boulders and the seven-mile-long Somes Sound. Somesville offers gorgeous views of the Sound, its' inlets and the mountains to the east. The community of Somesville is also known for being home to the Acadia Repertory Theater, which is the village's other main attraction. Just to the east and south of Somesville is Acadia National Park, the first national park established east of the Mississippi. Over 47,000 acres of magnificent coastline, mountains, woodlands, lakes and streams and quaint fishing villages are contained within the park. Activities are endless and include hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, fishing, boating, whale watching, camping, photography and wildlife viewing - and dining on some of the world's best lobster.
