The fishing village of Port Clyde sits at the end of the St. George Peninsula. The road leading here meanders along the St. George River, passing meadows and farmhouses and winding away from the river to the east side of the peninsula, which faces the Atlantic Ocean. Shipbuilding and granite quarrying were big industries here in the 1800s. Later seafood canneries opened here; you can still buy Port Clyde sardines. Lobster fishing is an economic anchor today, and the quiet village is a haven for artists, with a number of galleries. Marshall Point Lighthouse, right in the harbor, has a small museum.
