National Maine Day

National Maine Day celebrates one of the most special states in the USA! Local residents and tourists alike have praised the beauty of its mountains, green areas, and the bay of the same name. Many creative people live in Maine, inspired by its picturesque nature.


The origin of the name of the state is still a mystery, but people have been living in the area for thousands of years. During the French and Indian War in 1763, the land passed to England. Maine was part of Massachusetts during the Revolutionary War, during which the British harshly suppressed the population’s unrest. In 1775, they burned the port of Falmouth to the ground. After 4 years, the Americans attempted an attack on the British fortifications, but it was unsuccessful.

After independence, the area remained part of Massachusetts until a vote for separation in 1807. This process failed, but the war between opponents during 1812-1814 eventually led to the adoption of the state constitution in 1819, making Maine the 23rd state of America. In the 19th century, migrants from Ireland arrived in Maine, leading to the growth of the Catholic Church. National Maine Day has been celebrated since 2017, but is not an official holiday.
