The village of Brooklin, originally part of Sedgwick, established itself as an independent town in 1849. Today it's home to the world-famous Wooden Boat School, a 60-acre oceanfront campus offering courses in woodworking, boatbuilding, and seamanship. A small park-like area on the waterfront has a long pier and affords spectacular views of the area's chiseled coast. The school is off the road to Naskeag Point, a sleepy, serenely beautiful spot at the end of the peninsula
road with a small rock beach, teeny park, and a home peeking through the trees on the island across the harbor.
