Welcome to Yarmouth

Nestled along the shores of Casco Bay, Yarmouth combines coastal living, community charm, and a welcoming atmosphere. Though the town’s history dates back to the 17th century, Yarmouth was not officially incorporated until 1849. The 19th-century shipbuilding boom fueled the town’s growth, shaping its maritime heritage through architecture. Today, Yarmouth is a coastal gem, celebrated for its historic allure, tight-knit community, and harmonious mix of small-town charm and modern conveniences, making it a coveted residence in Maine. It’s a quintessential New England town where natural beauty is perhaps the biggest draw.
