Cape Jellison
View of Cape Jellison and Stockton Harbor from Fletcher Hill

Cape Jellison extends the south side of Stockton Springs to the mouth of the Penobscot River

and encloses Stockton Harbor, the most protected harbor on the coast of Maine.

"The Cape" is not only a unique residential area, but also provides the setting for

the harbor with a public boat launching facility, Fort Point State Park and

the Fort Point Lighthouse.

 

The Harbor

 

Back in the day...

Round about the turn of the century...

Cape Jellison was a bustling shipping port. Three wooden piers were built on the
Cape between 1905 and 1907 measuring 1,100 feet, 1,600 feet, and 1,750 feet
in length, but were destroyed by fire on November 8, 1924.
