Deer Isle, Maine's second largest island, is a rural, unspoiled island in Penobscot Bay, with a year 'round population of about 2400. Granite quarried on Deer Isle was used to build the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, the US Naval Academy, and the George Washington Bridge. Deer Isle is also the site of the internationally acclaimed Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, where Gayle Fraas and Duncan Slade have taught on many occasions.
The Deer Isle Thorofare is a narrow but well-marked channel that runs north of the Merchants Row archipelago and connects East Penobscot Bay to Jericho Bay.
