Winterport Cemetery District Notice of Stone Repair

The Winterport District Board of Trustees announces that Maine Gravesite Maintenance LLC of Glenburn, Maine, will begin work in Oak Hill Cemetery in June 2019.  Proprietors Stu Kallgren and Sue Dunham of MGM have trained with three of the most renowned stone conservators in the United States, learning how to assess the condition of monuments and headstones and then to clean, repair, level, and restore the stones.

MGM also cleans one veteran's headstone free of charge in every cemetery that they work in, and invite local residents to visit and observe anytime they are working.

This notice of cleaning is directed to any persons who may object to work being done on stones in their family lot in Oak Hill Cemetery.  please contact Board Chair Edward C. Russell at erussell@lanhamblackwell.com or 478-7879, or write to Winterport Cemetery District, PO Box 413, Winterport, Maine 04496 with any objections.

Welcome to Winterport

Historic Maine Town

Winterport is a small town located in Waldo County, Maine. Incorporated March 12, 1860 and once home to far-ranging sea captains, Winterport retains a 19th century charm that blends well with 20th century conveniences.

Scenic Downtown and Waterfront

Located just 12 miles south of Bangor on Route 1A, Winterport faces the deep and fast-flowing Penobscot River. Older homes, many built for Winterport sea captains, stand along the downtown roadways. Sidewalks encourage people to stroll through the town.

From the historic downtown, where people can find a variety of restaurants and small businesses, visitors can walk the short distance to the Winterport waterfront and watch boats make their way to and from the Penobscot Bay and open waters just beyond.

Rich in Natural Resources

Winterport is fortunate to have abundant natural resources including the Penobscot River, Marsh Stream, numerous brooks, acres of gravel deposits, rolling hills and hardwood forests. Such abundance allows our hard-working businesses to prosper.

A Proud Heritage

The Union Meeting House, built in 1834, is a special meeting place for townspeople.  This building shelters a bell cast by Paul Revere, a belfry clock installed in 1861, and a Masons and Hamlin hand-pumped reed organ installed in 1859.  Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, the Union Meeting House is the subject of ongoing preservation efforts and local pride.
