World Traveler Signpost.

World Traveler Signpost

The original signs were separate hand-painted wood slats stacked and attached to two wooden posts. It was stolen almost yearly by the students of Bates College in Lewiston as a class prank. It was replaced each year until it was built with a more substantial, well-anchored metal post to discourage the yearly prank.

There was a time when travelers in Lynchville needed a sign to tell them they were 94 miles from China (Maine) but only 14 miles from Norway (Maine).

The sign lists distances to actual towns in the region with exotic destination names.

World Traveler Sign

World Traveler sign with towns such as Berlin and Poland, which are in Maine. Still there (we visited on July 7, 2012), with added features such as Sasquatch and raccoon statues, and other items. The statues are on private property, which is posted, but people are invited to enjoy it, just not go on the property.

[Rita Taylor, 07/12/2012]

A favorite Old School photo-op: stand under a big road sign with arrows pointing to far-away-sounding places, but they're all nearby towns. You'll look like a world traveler, but you only went to Maine.
