Bailey island is a small island located in Casco Bay, in Maine, USA. It is also a part of the town called Harpswell.First the island was called Newaggin, a name given by the local Abenaki Native Americans, but it was changed to Bailey around 1742, when it was bought by reverend Timothy Bailey (according to some stories he payed for it one pound of tobacco and a gallon of rum!).
Some interesting places on the island include: Mackerel Cove, one of the most photographed places in Maine - you can see it on the first photo; Bailey Island Bridge - on the second picture; Land's End, a rocky beach at the end of the island; The Giant Stairs, a rock formation on the edge of the island; and “The Nubble″, a bait shack where local lobstermen leave their buoys - the one you can see on the postcard.
