The village of Passadumkeag is admirable located, and will doubtless become an important mart of the trade of a large section of country. This flourishing village lies at the junction of Passadumkeag river with the Penobscot. This delightful stream is about 25 miles in length. It rises in the north eastern part of this county, and waters the northern part of Hancock county. It re-enters Penobscot county, and receives the Cold stream, two miles from Passadumkeag village. Both the Passadumkeag and Cold stream afford excellent mill privileges.
