[FRY iland] is an island town in Sebago Lake, Cumberland County, incorporated on July 1, 1998 from a portion of Standish. The Island once had been governed by a semi-autonomous village corporation.
The island is primarily a summer vacation home destination. The Frye Island Ferry operates between the end of Raymond Neck, in the town of Raymond, to the ferry dock on the island. Vehicles, supplies, and people make the trip in about fifteen minutes every half hour.
Community facilities are located near the ferry landing: a general store, post office, emergency rescue, and a mini-park with the plaque and a granite bench. From here one travels the gravel roads to the interior and the seasonal cottages along the shore of Sebago Lake.
