Where Maine's Story Begins...

Old York is committed to providing a high quality experience to our members and visitors. But, the health and safety of our friends is our first priority. Due to concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, all of our upcoming programs have been cancelled through August, and our historic buildings will remain closed for the season. 

Thank you for your support. Be safe and be well. 

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 been a destination for people seeking refuge in its natural beauty and pace of life. The beauty, culture, and history of the area continue to captivate visitors to this day. Come to Old York and let us engage you in coastal Maine’s heritage, for an afternoon, a day, or a lifetime.
