DescriptionSouth Berwick grew up around some of the earliest lumbering efforts in Maine. The region's straight white pines were prized as masts for the ships of the British navy, and a sawmill was in operation before 1640. Later successes in milling and shipping also contributed to the town's present-day appearance—a charming New England community with many Colonial houses set on spacious lawns.
A combination of manufacturing and farming sustains South Berwick as well as the neighboring communities of Berwick and North Berwick.
