Keep Maine Green Billboard

One of the only legal billboards in Maine, as the state banned and removed billboards in 1978. It was erected by the Great Northern Paper Co. and has stood for decades. On up the road just a bit is the town sign for Kakadjo (population not many). Watch out for moose; you will see many Beware of Moose signs along this isolated road.

[Tim Fogle, 03/29/2024]

The primitive billboard, which, remember, was erected by a paper company with a business interest in trees, reads: "This is God's Country. Why set it on Fire and make it look like Hell?" Kakadjo has since adopted the nickname "God's Country."
