Population 18,705 (207) 626-2300 Augusta, one of America’s most beautiful capitals, has been the capital city since 1827, seven years after Maine was admitted to the Union. The Capitol Building is the centerpiece for this special city. Located on both sides of the Kennebec River, Augusta is the center of employment, commerce, and service for Central Maine and is the seat of state and county government. Augusta is a one-hour drive from Portland and less than a three-hour drive from Boston. While the City’s population is only 18,705, the City is the service center to a large area of some 70,000 people and, more recently, has become a retail shopping mecca for a population of some 350,000 Maine residents. Augusta is a city rich in history. From its early days as a Pilgrim trading post, the City has grown as an industrial trade center and has become a center for the region’s health and educational services. Joint public and private efforts have resulted in the development of the Augusta Business Park, Augusta Civic Center Complex, downtown redevelopment, and regional retail shopping centers. A modern Augusta City Hall Complex, including a renovated Old Fort Western (1754) museum complex, graces the banks of the Kennebec. Such efforts have also stimulated redevelopment efforts in Augusta’s historic downtown district along the Kennebec River. Recreational opportunities and cultural activities play an important role of life in Augusta – a great community, in a convenient location, with friendly people, and a stable and vigorous economy.

In 1867 and again in 1901, Chelsea ceded land to the “National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers” from the Civil War. (The town sent 98 soldiers to the war, 28 were killed.) The institution eventually became the Togus Veterans Hospital, then Togus Medical Center, known generally as “Togus.”
DRESDEN Population 1,650 (207) 737-4335
Dresden was first settled as Frankfort in 1752 by German and French Huguenot immigrants. A town in Lincoln County, it incorporated on June 25, 1794 from a portion of the town of Pownalborough (later Wiscasset). The Germans, brought to the area through

the encouragement of General Samuel Waldo, contributed the name Dresden after the city in their homeland. Dresden annexed land from Alna in 1741. In 1847 it set off two islands to form the Town of Perkins, which surrendered its organization in 1918 leaving the unorganized township of Perkins. The two islands are Swan Island and Little Swan Island, now a nature preserve administered by the State of Maine. The 1761 Pownalborough Courthouse was the first built in Maine and the only one built prior to the Revolution. Parson Jacob Bailey used the courthouse as a church. The Pownalborough Courthouse has hosted future U.S. President John Adams, George Washington’s first Supreme Court nominee William Cushing, Robert Treat Paine and David Sewall. It was the setting for a trial noted in midwife Martha
FARMINGDALE Population 2,915 (207) 582-2225
Farmingdale, a town in Kennebec County, was incorporated on April 3, 1852 from parts of Gardiner, West Gardiner and Hallowell. On the Kennebec River just north of Gardiner, it is a residential community serving the Augusta-Gardiner capital area. During the 19th century and before the availability of mechanical refrigeration, there were several ice houses along the river. Ice was cut from the frozen water and stored in warehouses often insulated with sawdust. When the ice was gone, the river was clogged with logs floating downstream to paper mills further south.

Manchester, Maine, settled in 1775, became a town in 1850. It was made up of parts of five towns: Augusta, Readfield, Hallowell, Litchfield, and Winthrop. It was first called Kennebec, but finding that their mail often went to Kennebunk, Maine, the townspeople decided in 1854 to change the name to Manchester. The central part of town is known as the Forks, a fitting name, since seven roads meet there. Just minutes from Augusta, many small businesses flourish, surrounded by beauty. Manchester boasts a gorgeous lakeshore on Cobbosseeconte Lake.

RANDOLPH Population 1,724 (207) 582-5808
Randolph, about 2 square miles in size, is about 6 miles south of Augusta and about 20 miles north of the coastal town of Wiscasset.

It was incorporated in 1887, and used to be a thriving river community specializing in boats, lumber, ice and a terminal for a narrow gauge railroad to Togus Veterans Home in Chelsea. Being the smallest town in Maine (by area), it has a small town atmosphere with the proximity to all services and schools.

READFIELD Population 2,548 (207) 685-4939
Readfield’s population was 2,598 at the 2010 census. Readfield is home to the Kents Hill School, a preparatory school, Maranacook Community Schools, public schools for the district, a few summer camps, and the annual Readfield Heritage Days. Founded in 1771 from a portion of Winthrop, Readfield boasted an active and vibrant industrial life throughout the 1800’s and early 1900’s. The area once known as factory square was filled with a wollen factory, a sash and blind factory, a boot factory, a grist mill, and a slaughter house. While the industry is gone, the natural beauty of the surroundings remains. The town contains four lakes and ponds, including Maranacook Lake. Due to the numerous bodies of water, Readfield was previously named Pond Town.
RICHMOND Population 3,383 (207) 737-4305
Richmond, a small town with a big heart! If you’re looking for a place to visit or call home, consider Richmond, Maine. It is blessed with unparalleled beauty, from the rolling hills that surrounds it to the timeless Kennebec River that defines its downtown. Visitors come from miles away to Swan Island, just a stone’s throw from downtown Richmond. Four miles of trails and camping are yours to enjoy as you share the island with deer and bald eagles. Downtown Richmond has a lot of small shops that take you back to an earlier time. Whether shopping antiques or looking for a special gift, you can probably find something of interest right in town. But when you get a hankering for more shopping and recreation choices, you can reach the shopping nexus of Augusta about 30 minutes away. Maintaining an environment for business growth is a priority for Richmond. The participatory style of local government is responsive to the needs of local business.

Chelsea /Whitefield/Windsor/Wiscasset (207) 549-3261
Cultural opportunities within the Capital Area include Shakespearean plays performed at the Theater at Monmouth throughout the summer and concerts performed by the Kennebec Performing Arts and the Augusta Symphony Orchestra plus year-round performances at the Waterville Opera House. Other venues for performing arts include Gaslight Theater in Hallowell, the University of Maine at Augusta and new state of the art facilities at Cony High School and Winthrop High School. Two of the area’s historic theaters, the Colonial Theater in Augusta and Johnson Hall in Gardiner, are going under major renovations to preserve the history of the buildings and to become beacons for the arts in the region.
Dresden/Farmingdale/Hallowell/Monmouth/ Richmond (207) 622-6351
The weather of the area is in four distinct seasons, but without the severe snowfalls and cold of the northern regions. Since Augusta is at the head of tide in the Kennebec River, it could be considered coastal, but it lacks the heavy fogs of the seashore towns. The summer heat is comfortably tempered, but a few days occur with maximums reaching as high as 90 degrees. Midsummer afternoon temperatures are in the ideal range from 75 to 80 degrees on an average day, with the nighttime minimum average in the upper 50’s. Uncomfortably hot and humid nights are relatively few. Winters are moderately cold, with a mean temperature of 23 degrees for the three months of December, January and February. Readings of zero or lower are recorded on an average of 13 days per winter.
