Description of City/Town
Located on Great Deer Isle, Green’s Landing was the principal village on the island with two major commercial activities, fishing and quarrying. The fishermen of Green’s Landing supplied fish to waterfront packing plants. Quarries at the Landing and adjacent islands produced large quantities of granite used in building construction throughout the Northeast.
