Did you know?

There are two theories on the origin of the name "Casco Bay". Aucocisco is the Abenaki name for the bay, which means 'place of herons' (sometimes translated as 'muddy'). The Portuguese explorer Estêvão Gomes, mapped the Maine coast in 1525 and named the bay "Bahía de Cascos" (Bay of Helmets, based on the shape of the bay).

The first settlement in Casco Bay was that of Capt. Christopher Levett, an English explorer, who built a house on House Island in 1623–24. The first permanent settlement of the bay was named Casco; despite changing names throughout history, that settlement remains the largest city in the Casco Bay region, now called the city of Portland, Maine

It was first reported in 1700 by Colonel Wolfgang William Römer, an English military engineer, that there were "as many islands as there are days in the year". The United States Coastal Pilot lists 136 islands, leading to the bay's islands being called the Calendar Islands based on the popular myth there are 365 of them. Later, Robert M. York, the former Maine state historian said there are "little more than two hundred islands".

Maine, the northeastern most U.S. state, is known for its rocky coastline, maritime history and nature areas like the granite and spruce islands of Acadia National Park. Moose are plentiful in Baxter State Park, home to Mt. Katahdin, endpoint of the Appalachian Trail. Lighthouses such as the candy-striped beacon at West Quoddy Head, dot the coast, as do lobster shacks and sandy beaches like Ogunquit and Old Orchard. 

Maine was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state on March 15, 1820.

Greg Benoit
Founder

Greg graduated with a BFA in industrial design from SCAD and moved back to Maine in 2011. He began his design career as a product designer for a national outdoor retailer. After having a life altering event in 2013 he and Christina decided to found Benoit’s Design Company in Westbrook Maine. Greg realized life is precious and wanted to design products that connected to the adventurer within everyone. He grew up in very active family who spent summer on the water and winter in the mountains. Any chance he can get he loves to travel and experience new cultures. If he doesn’t have projects up to his eyeballs than he is spending time with family and friends, dishing up something new in “Greg’s dirty kitchen”, or cleaning the dust off the shop dog, Walter.
