Eastbrook is located Hancock County, Maine. In 1811, the first home was built in what was then known as Township 15. Early settlers engaged in farming and lumbering. Eastbrook, named for the East branch of the Union River, was incorporated in 1837 with 20,283 acres.
Today, Eastbrook is a welcoming community and home to over 400 year-round residents as well as many others who enjoy spending summer days on our beautiful lakes.
