Franklin County, incorporated in 1838, is in Western Maine,
bordering Canada and serving as an economic gateway for U.S. and
Canadian business. Historically, the area was known for its dairy
farms, lumbering, canning, woolen mills, and shoe manufacturing
industries. It is still home to the Verso Paper Mill, as well
as newer companies such as Carrabasset Coffee and ICT Group.
