Town of Frenchville

Frenchville, “The Small Town With A Big Heart,” with a population of approximately 1,000, is nestled along the St. John River between the larger Valley anchor communities of Madawaska and Fort Kent and is predominantly an agricultural community. 

The Town of Frenchville maintains a boat launch facility on the St. John River, and a fully equipped recreational park including baseball diamond, ice-skating rink, community center, as well as a pavilion and gazebo at the Heritage Park across the street.  The Green Water Tower, maintained by the Frenchville Historical Society, is the original structure built in 1910 and was used as a pit-stop for steam-engine trains that came through the area.  It is the only standing railway water tower east of the Mississippi River.

Frenchville is also home to the Northern Aroostook Regional Airport, used for general aviation purposes, and the St. Luce Catholic Church, which is the oldest Catholic church in the St. John Valley.
