If you like history, it is refreshing to visit the original Poland Spring. We were guided through by staffer Catherine who has also designed many of the tour brochures (she is a design school grad)

Poland Maine is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so its disappointing to drive up to the Museum and water sourse to find it closed for a managers meeting. That need to be done elsewhere.

Learn about the history of Poland Spring Water, with a guide to answer questions and a short film if interested. Also a very nice venue for a wedding reception.

Beautiful buildings that have large windows to peek thru. We were lucky enough to arrive when buildings were open. Very informative displays and photos of famous visitors. Can be toured quickly, but certainly worth a visit!

Even though it was off season while we were there the Preservation Park was open to be viewed. The buildings of course were not opened until Memorial Day.

It was cool to see the original source of Poland Springs water. This is located on the grounds of the Poland Springs Resort

We stayed at the Wolf Cove Inn and took a ride to Poland Spring Preservation Park. The grounds were beautiful, however, nothing was open. We looked in the window of the Source. We took a walk on the Maple Trail. It was just long enough.
