Since its inception, this monthly newspaper has grown in content and readership and has come to capture the voice of its unique community, which includes Harpswell, Orr's Island, Bailey Island, Great Island, and Cundy's Harbor. The Anchor is enjoyed by its residents and those in areas throughout Maine, and has become a vital forum for local issues and news, as well as a place to read about remarkable individuals, their history and colorful locale. Our regular columnists add local flavor and share valuable information for daily living, and each month Harpswell's varied population is represented within its pages.
