Acres of forest and fields for sale at Bailey's Mistake on the Maine Atlantic Coast.Around 1830 a ship captain named Bailey was sailing from Boston to Lubec and got lost in the fog. Mistaking a cove for the Lubec Narrows captain Bailey ran aground on what is now referred to as Bailey's Ledge. Too embarrassed to return to Boston, Bailey and his crew came ashore with the lumber on board and settled the area. Come see why once you come aground here, you don't want to leave.The land is composed of forest, open field, ocean flats and a saltwater pond.
