The French originally named this area Port Moltare. The fishermen who later settled here in 1760 helped to develop this area into a thriving shipping community. Cargoes of salted and dried fish were shipped to the United States, Caribbean and South America. Lumber from the sawmills of Greenfield, Charleston and Mill Village were loaded on ships and sailed to foreign ports.
Today, Port Medway has many attractions including the picturesque Medway Head Lighthouse near Long Cove and is the birthplace of country music artist Carroll Baker.
Port Medway is off exit 17a on Highway 103.
