The St. John Valley in the state of Maine was settled by fleeing Acadians.  The pioneer settlers escaped the deportation by following the St. John River west.  The St. John River forms the international border between Canada and the United States.   The Valley is unique because its people have tried to retain their customs and traditions.  The usage of the French language has diminished but is still prevalent.
