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.

---"Hi Folks...Rita and I are going to be permanently moving trash and recycling pick up day to Mondays, starting on January 29th. We are glad to work with anyone having a problem with the transition and anyone caught off guard is welcome to bring their trash and recycling to our house for storage until we all get back on the same page again. And please feel free to call with any questions about trash, recycling, "life, death, the universe," etc.  Thanks for your patience and all the good works you do. Rita and Alvah, 335-2018"
