Watershed’s campus straddles the small towns of Newcastle and Edgecomb, Maine about 50 miles northeast of Portland. We are located in a rural area, approximately 1.5 miles northeast of Wiscasset, Maine. The main campus address is 19 Brick Hill Rd., Newcastle, ME.

From the South:

  • Take I-95 (Maine Turnpike) North to I-295, exit 44. This takes you through Portland. Note that this is NOT the Maine Turnpike at this point.
  • Follow I-295 North to exit 28 for Brunswick. As you exit I-295 at Brunswick you will be on U.S. Route 1 North.
  • Follow Route 1 through Brunswick, Bath, and Wiscasset.
  • After crossing the Wiscasset bridge, continue one mile to Cochran Road on your left- at the top of a hill, just past the Route 27 turn-off to Boothbay.
  • Turn left onto Cochran Rd., just past the turn off to Rt 27 South.*

From the North:

  • Watershed is about 8 miles South of Damariscotta/Newcastle via Rt. 1.
  • Turn on Cochran Road, at the top of the hill across from the turn off to Rt. 27 South.

*The entrance to Watershed’s campus is seven-tenths of a mile along Cochran Rd. Drive past our administrative office/gallery in the yellow house.  Turn right onto Brick Hill Road at the Watershed/Straw Farm sign. The first building on the right is the Commons. The studio is 1/4 mile further down the gravel road to the right. The farm and property on the opposite side of Brick Hill Road is not part of Watershed.
