Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Allagash River is a tributary of the St. John River, approximately 92 miles (148 km) long, in northern Maine in the United States. It drains a remote and scenic area of wilderness in the Maine North Woods north of Mount Katahdin. The name "Allagash" comes from the Penobscot word /walak sk iht k /, meaning "bark stream."The Allagash issues from Churchill Lake (fomrely known as Heron Lake) at Churchill Depot in northern Piscataquis County. In its natural state, it also drained Allagash, Chamberlain, and Telos Lakes, but in the 1840s dams were built which diverted their drainage into the East Branch of the Penobscot River, to facilitate the shipping of logs south to coastal Maine.show more
