Like its namesake in Wales, Pembroke was historically a shipbuilding center due to its excellent harbor. Settled in 1774 and incorporated in 1832, the small town was building ships as early as 1825. Today, a quiet and sleepy village; in the past, Pembroke’s population reached over 2,000 people. Also home to the Pembroke Iron Company; this little town has a rich and varied history.
At Mahar’s Point, you will find Reversing Falls Park home to a reversing falls. This reversing action is caused by the strong tides of Cobscook Bay and is not to be missed. The park is also a great place for a picnic or day outdoors with the family.
