When did they change it to Baileyville? Sounds like something out of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life." USPS can name it anything they want, still Woodland to me.

Seems to me it was changed in '98 or '99. Big deal to the USPS to have two Woodlands and Aroosook's came first so they got to "officially" keep the name. Maybe they did have Geo. Bailey. Heck, Priinceton had Buffalo Bob and sometimes Ted Williams.

In spite of separate zip codes and a lot of miles between, two towns with the same name were too confusing for USPS. Imagine how many nightmares they'd have if they delivered to all the Round Ponds in Maine.

I believe the one at the east end of the Airline is closed. It was last time I was by about a month ago.
You're right. The little motel is open but this one has been closed for several years.

It looks like the establishment in Beddington is very much what I was looking for, and seems to be not terribly far from Calais, which is convenient for my route.

Thank you Mainers.

Quite looking foward to exploring this part of Maine as I didn't get beyond Bangor last go around.

Where I lived, it was the zip that designated where you lived- not the town name. Our zip had two town names, you could use either one, it looks like the USPS pulled one up here in Maine.

I had never heard of that either until the USPS actually sent us a letter. So, there was no need for Baileyville to ever come into existence.
