Winterport is a town in Waldo County, incorporated on March 12, 1860 from a portion of Frankfort.
Settled in 1760, the town, once a substantial shipbuilding center, is located on the Penobscot River just above Bucksport on Maine Routes 69 and 139 and U.S. Route 1A. In recent years a marina has expanded and an export business has been established on the river.
Winterport is primarily a rural community with its land area extending ten miles westward from the river. An attraction along Route 139 among the farms and woods is the Winterport Dragway, featuring auto drag races with specialty vehicles and street vehicles.
Partly a residential commuter community for the nearby greater Bangor area, Winterport's Main Street, U.S. Route 1A, has been reconstructed to showcase is historic district.
