Washburn Reviews

2 reviews
I like living in Washburn. It's a small town with friendly people for the most part. We have our own little grocery as well as a post office and police station. We also have a rec for the younger kids. I would love to see the high school in Washburn have a more diverse curriculum for the students. Some parents choose to send their children to other schools to give them a wider range of curriculum and extracurricular activities to choose from. I believe a change like this to our school system would have others looking to join our small town. If you are ever in Northern Maine look us up!

The town is tiny. There is nothing much to do once you reach high school other than sports which not everyone does.
