Along the banks of the Narraguagus River, Cherryfield is an architectural gem. With old homes in Federalist, Second Empire and Victorian styles the town offers a self guided walking tour along Main Street and historic Campbell Hill. Make sure to stop into the Historical Society or town hall for the Walking Tour Guide.
Legend has two different versions of how Cherryfield got its name. One is for the cherry trees that line the river and bloom in spring. The other story says that the blueberry barrens, which turn bright red in fall, resemble fields of cherries. (Incidentally, Cherryfield is also known as the Wild Blueberry Capital of the World!). The end of June offers the Cherryfield Celebration with a parade, fireworks, follies and concerts where the town comes together to celebrate itself. And August is all about the blueberry harvest. You'll want to stop and taste the berries.
