Eastport, once a bustling sardine-industry city in Washington County, is making a comeback.
In this episode of Chasing Maine, we meet two of Eastport’s newer residents — Richard Fulghum, a former college professor from Denver, and Joan Lowden, a native Californian who left a tech career in Silicon Valley.
Despite the challenges of long, cold winters and small-town life, they both made quality of life decisions to exit career paths and move thousands of miles to make Eastport their landing spot.
