Its seat is Houlton with offices in Caribou and Fort Kent.Known locally in Maine as "The County", it is the largest American county by land area east of the Rocky Mountains and the largest county by area in Maine, as well as in New England. As Maine's northernmost county, its northernmost village, Estcourt Station, is therefore also the northernmost community in New England and in the contiguous United States east of the Great Lakes.
Aroostook County is known for its potato crops, as well as its Acadian culture. In the Saint John Valley in the northern part of the county, which borders Madawaska County, New Brunswick, many of the residents are bilingual in English and Acadian French. Elsewhere in Maine, New England French is the predominant form of French spoken.
