Maine is the 23rd constituent state of the united states that joined the union on March 15, 1820, with its original capital as Portland. Currently, its capital is Augusta. The state is in the north-eastern part of the country, thus borders Quebec, New Hampshire, and New Brunswick. The state's most outstanding feature is the rocky coastline that makes it the leading US state producer of lobsters.
Maine's nicknames are "the vacationland" and "the pine tree state," and its motto is "Dirigo," which means I lead. Maine has 22 cities, 16 counties, 432 towns, and 34 plantations. The state lives up to its vacationland nickname due to its scenic lakes, resorts, seacoast mountains, and beaches. Moreover, it has 30 state parks that support tourist sports, 5,000 streams, and 2500 lakes.
A postmaster, George Long, built the East Blue Hill Post office in the 1880s. It is a 1 ½ story building whose frame is wooden and has an Italianate styling vibe. It served as east blue hill's first post office since 1873. In 2003, it got listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
In 1933, a classical revival architecture building was built in Orono on the 1 Bennach street. The building became the main Orono post office.

The post office's interior is quite remarkable too. It has a terrazzo marble floor and marble door trims.
