York. Where Maine’s story begins…

As one of the earliest English settlements in the country, York became the seat of government for the Province of Maine and thrived as a center of maritime commerce. Through the centuries, York has remained a destination for people seeking refuge in its natural beauty and pace of life. These qualities continue to captivate visitors with the beauty, culture and history of the area. Come to Old York and let us engage you in an afternoon, a day, or a lifetime of coastal Maine’s heritage. Click here for more info.
