Ellsworth, the seat of Hancock County, is the largest shopping hub in the heart of Downeast Maine. It is best known as the gateway for tourists visiting nearby Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island and the Bar Harbor region. Once an important shipbuilding port, its harbor is now largely devoted to pleasure craft and vacationers alike. Near the heart of town, ‘Woodlawn’, a 180-acre historic estate, is open for the public to visit it’s house museum, gardens, and public park. ‘Woodlawn’ also boasts the only tournament sized croquet court in Maine. The highways traversing Ellsworth bring over 2 million tourists a year to Acadia National Park to experience all that Maine has to offer. They come to shop, hike or bike the carriage trails and to enjoy any number of outdoor activities available at their fingertips.

Briggs & Wholey attorneys know that with the swell summer tourism comes an increased risk in the number of traffic accidents.
