Gordons Wharf
Welcome to Gordons Wharf on the Schoodic National Scenic Byway. At this site you will see a panoramic view of Taunton Bay, a highly productive tidal zone. We are building this into a water-access facility that will include hand and trailer launching for small boats, interpretive information, ecological education and more. This was once the site for shipping massive blocks of Sullivan Granite to urban markets including Boston and New York.
