Welcome to the Isle au Haut town website!

Isle au Haut is a small, unbridged island town in Knox County, Maine. Isle au Haut was first discovered by Europeans in 1604, when Samuel de Champlain named it "High Island." The town was incorporated in 1874, when it became independent from Deer Isle. Created as a resource for residents, visitors, or anyone looking for information about the town and the island, we hope this website will not only keep you updated on local events, but that you will also learn more about current events in local government and on committees. Please bookmark this page and come back often as it continues to develop.

    Dear Isle au Haut Neighbors--a simple request from the TLC,
    Many of you have heard of the Outer Islands Teaching and Learning
    Collaborative (TLC), founded initially in 2009 by island teachers. The
    TLC is an extraordinary inter-island initiative, now administered
    through the Island Institute in close collaboration with an
    inter-island Advisory Board. As a former Isle au Haut teacher, I am
    the representatives of the Isle au Haut on the TLC Advisory Board.
    Through technology-based platforms and periodic face-to-face meetings,
    teachers collaborate on their professional practices, students on
    curricular and social activities, and island communities have the
    opportunity to get to know one another through their schools. The
    program connects communities from Isle au Haut, the Cranberry Isles,
    Cliff Island, Frenchboro, Matinicus and Monhegan.
    In an effort to assess the TLC program, improve its design and
    management, and plan strategically for its future, the TLC staff and
    advisors are conducting a survey. If you have received an email asking
    you to complete the survey, please do so—it takes minutes! If you have
    any connection to the TLC--past or present-- and you have not received
    a request to complete the survey, please email me pgreatorex@gmail.com
    with “Request for TLC survey link” in the subject line of your email.
    I will be happy to send you the link. Thanks to everyone for helping
    us improve and sustain the TLC!
    Sincerely, Paula Greatorex
