Affordable, Low Cost Living

Living in a small town, like Houlton, offers you many great benefits including lower cost of living, opportunities for more meaningful connections with your community, and access to a calmer, nature-filled life beyond the concrete jungle. 

My family and I have lived in several different places from Tennessee to Argentina to Australia. Houlton is by far our favorite place. We have some of best broadband internet access we have ever had, making our business a breeze to operate. We love the climate and the people and my children are absolutely thriving here in every way possible.

Houlton Band Of Maliseet Indians

The Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians is comprised of some 1700 members and is lead by a Tribal Chief. A smaller band of the larger Maliseet Nation of New Bunswick, Canada, the Houlton Band calls the Meduxnekeag River home. The Maliseets are river people who have traditionally been hunters and gatherers in the St. John River basin, of which the Meduxnekeag is a tributary.

The Meduxnekeag river itself is prized for its brook and brown trout populations. Currently, HBMI has farm and commercial land holdings in Aroostook County . Much of the land borders a significant amount of the Meduxnekeag, a critical link in preserving tribal practices, traditions and history.

Spread Your Wings

“The Houlton International Airport is such an added benefit to living and working in this area. Maine is a big state, but much smaller with air travel. Whether you’re a private pilot or want to become one, Houlton has a flying club providing access to a plane and a group of general aviation pilots. The Houlton International Airport (KHUL) provides both a great recreational and business travel opportunity ”  – Matt Nightingale
