新英格蘭地區中,面積最大的一州,緬因於1820年加入聯邦,成為美國第23州。該州的名字係仿照一個舊時的法國省名。本州是密西西比河東岸,人口最稀疏的一州。其別名是極為相稱的「松林之州」(Pine Tree State),因為它90%的土地都是森林。雖然每年夏季,數百萬名的遊客都會湧入這片「渡假勝地」,為這塊土地帶來驚人的收入,但毫不令人驚訝的,緬因州的經濟來源,大部分都來自木材業、造紙業及紙製品。緬因州的首府是奧古斯塔(Augusta),而它的州花是白松的松果及纓。

The largest of the New England states in area, Maine, in 1820, was the 23rd state to join the Union. Its name comes from an ancient French province of the same name. The most sparsely populated state east of the Mississippi River, it's appropriately called the "Pine Tree State," as 90 percent of its land is forest. Not surprisingly, most of Maine's economy is related to timber and the production of paper and paper products although the millions of tourists who flock each summer to "Vacationland" are a significant source of revenue. The capital is Augusta; the state flower is the white pine cone and tassel.
