Long Description:

A distance and direction arrows signpost can be found inside the Maine State Visitor Information Center along I-95 in Kittery, Maine. It lists 11 small town, big name places in the state.

The base resembles an ANWB Paddenstoel, with its four trapezoidal vertical sides which angle inward at the top. A square post extends from the top surface onto which 22 planks are attached, two for each location on opposite sides of the post. It stands about eight feet tall. The color scheme is a forest green background with yellow lettering on the base - "Travel Around the World in Maine" appears on each face. Off-white arrows are painted on the horizontal boards; forest green is used for place names and distances. Those are:

  • DENMARK 75 MI.
  • MEXICO 115 MI.
  • VIENNA 111 MI.
  • PERU 105 MI.
  • MADRID 144 MI.
