Welcome

A Place to Live, Work and Play A Place Rich with History and Opportunity JAY

Welcome to the Jay, Livermore, Livermore Falls Area! If you are reading this area guide, you’re probably wondering what this community has to offer. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. As a small business owner, 40 miles away, I decided to join the JLLF Chamber of Commerce to a get to know this community better. I began by networking our business to meet people through the many events the chamber hosts and sponsors. I’ve gotten to know the kind of people that live here through our families and the people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in the last 3 years. They are friendly, caring and compassionate. That’s what gives these towns their distinctive trait. Take in rural Maine, and Maine-made goods. You can find anything from Maine maple syrup and apples to handmade crafts and woodwork. Look for fresh seasonal fruit and vegetable stands. There are a number of local restaurants to choose from. Our small towns together, have many recreational opportunities for all four seasons. Area trails to hike, bike, ride your ATV or snowmobile. Local skiing, X-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Enjoy boating, kayaking and fishing on the river, or one of our surrounding lakes. There’s nearby golfing and state fairs, festivals. Something for everyone! During those inclement weather days, whatever the season, you may want to enjoy browsing and supporting the local businesses many of which are in this guide along with a list of events taking place. Again, welcome and enjoy the experience. Hope to see you again in the future! Susan Donovan, Chairperson Jay ,Livermore, Livermore Falls Chamber of Commerce

The JLLF area is located at the center point of four counties. Within 10 minutes in any direction, you can be in Androscoggin, Franklin, Kennebec or Oxford Counties. This means if your travels take you to many of the larger communities in our area, such as Augusta, Lewiston/Auburn and Farmington, you’re less than an hour away. We are also approximately an hour away from Maine’s magnificent coastline and the best skiing on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Not to mention, we have many lakes, rivers, streams and many smaller mountains and nature trails right in our backyard. Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls are nestled in the Androscoggin River Valley and are the gateway to the Western Lakes and Mountains region. Each town embodies the close-knit communities synonymous with the enduring qualities of many Maine towns. The people who call this place home treasure the good old fashioned values that are often lost in other areas of the globe. Their work ethic is second to none. Collectively, they are always willing to pull together to get the job done—helping a neighbor or a stranger off the street. We are the home of Maine’s finest paper mill and are surrounded by many smaller businesses where the owner is still in the shop.

The Town of Jay, incorporated on February 26, 1795, is in southern Franklin County, situated on the Androscoggin River. The area became a hotbed of industry during the Industrial Revolution, with the river providing power for a multitude of mills and factories. While industry and conservation remain a strong part of the Jay area, the town retains a rural feel, with a population of approximately 5,000 across 48 square miles. Jay is home to Verso Paper Corp.’s Androscoggin Mill, which is the second largest producer of coated paper in the country. Located at the gateway to major ski areas, Jay has access to abundant recreational activities. French Falls is a ball field in the summer. Jay is the home of Spruce Mountain (sprucemountain.org), a small ski area owned by the three towns. The slope has eleven trails maintained by volunteers and is reasonably priced for families. Jay offers public tennis courts, and a 14-mile Rail Trail from Jay to Farmington that supports snowmobiles, ATVs, horseback riding, biking, and hiking. The Androscoggin River provides opportunities for excellent fishing and wildlife viewing, and is a venue for many tournaments. Canoes and kayaks are now a common sight, as residents and visitors are using the river as never before.
