Welcome to Freeport

Freeport's fame and fortune began a century ago when Leon Leonwood Bean opened a shop to sell equipment and provisions to hunters and fishermen heading north into the Maine woods. His success later brought other retailers to the area, making Freeport what it is today.

In July and August, LL Bean sponsors free Saturday-evening concerts (called Summer in the Park) in Freeport at Discovery Park.
