Bath Maine sits along the sparkling Kennebec River.
Centuries ago, the Abenaki Indians, among the first inhabitants in present-day Bath, gave the Kennebec River its name – “Kennebec” meaning “long level water.”The 0.56-mile Sagadahoc Bridge, completed in 2000, carries U.S. Route 1 across the Kennebec River. A beautiful giant standing guard over the mighty Kennebec River.
The city has a great combination of old and new seafaring history, wonderful “Maine life”, and a strong community feeling. Bath was listed as one of the “Best Small Cities in America” and was deemed a “Distinctive Destination” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
