If you're in Fort Kent it's a quick visit to this sight. You get a nice view of the St. John River and the boarder crossing. Yet I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

We visited here while touring northern Maine. After visiting mile maker 0 in Key West we knew we had to visit this place. The presentation was very nice.

I've been here and I've been to Key West (the other end of Route 1). No chickens roaming the streets of Fort Kent.

It was great to finally travel to the northernmost point of US1 since I had already been to the southernmost point in Key West, FL.
