Downeast Maine eyed for National Heritage area

by Nancy Beal

The Sunrise County Economic Council is organizing an inquiry into the creation of a National Heritage Area in eastern Maine. The move was prompted over a year ago by participants of the wild blueberry industry in Washington County, who envisioned the designation as both fitting for the unique, centuries-old existence of wild blueberries and, at the same time, capable of reviving the family farms that are in danger of going extinct because of pressure from the world of big business.
