Calais is a city in Washington County, Maine, United States.
The city has three United States border crossings (also known as a Port of entry) over the St. Croix River bordering St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada. Calais has historically been a city of commerce and is recognized as the primary shopping center of eastern Washington County and of Charlotte County, New Brunswick. Currently retail, service, and construction businesses are the primary components of the Calais economy.
On June 16, 1809, Plantation Number 5 PS was incorporated as Calais after Calais, France, in honor of French assistance during the American Revolution.
According to the US census, the city has a total area of 40.0 square miles, of which 34.0 square miles is land and 6.0 square miles, or 14.94%, is water. Calais is located at the head of tide on the St. Croix River.
Recently, the City of Calais acquired Devil's Head. The site comprises 318 acres of land, one mile of frontage on the St. Croix River estuary, and 6/10 of a mile of frontage on U.S. Route 1. Significant features on the property include a 340-foot (100 m) high granite headland towering over the estuary, a low-tide sand and boulder beach, upland forest, and abundant wildlife. Trail construction was completed in 2003.
Calais is the northern terminus of the East Coast Greenway, which has its southern terminus in Key West, Florida.
