History

The region that embraces Yarmouth and was first inhabited in the year 1636 was left twice prior the successful last settlement in the year 1713. William Royall acquired a farm in 1646 on a river that took his name. Few years prior to that, John Cousins used a neck of soil between the stream branches and possessed an island that both bear his name. Such settlements were established in Wescustogo, a name given by Wabanakis. Initially, the town established the eastern part of North Yarmouth, with the North that has been included in the name meant to make a distinction from Yarmouth, MA on Cape Cod. On September 22, 1680, North Yarmouth was being chartered and covers the area of the existing North Yarmouth Town, as well as Cumberland, Yarmouth, Harpswell, Cumberland, and Freeport towns. Originally settling at Casco Bay in the ocean, the town center moved upstream by 1830 to the lower portion of Royal River. Yarmouth was incorporated on August 8, 1849 as the town.

Area and Climate

The town of Yarmouth lies in Maine’s southern coast in the northeastern part of County of Cumberland, which is the most crowded county in the state. It is roughly 11 miles from Maine’s biggest city, the northeast of Portland.

Yarmouth symbolizes the best in the communities in the state: a main street that boasts of a New England style mixed with small businesses and old homes, an expanded commercial base alongside US Rt. 1, a charming throughway along Royal River, and a protected port situated in Yarmouth Harbor. The town is so unique, owing to the fact that a lot of residents here (which is over 8,300 in number) contribute their energies and time to make the place a friendly and warm community of compassionate people; hence, representing the motto: Our Latchstring Always Out.

The town receives 43” of rain each year, which is higher than the US average of 37”. It receives 68” of snowfall yearly, which is also higher than what an average US city receives every year (25”). Yarmouth has 197 sunny days, with July having the highest temperature of about 80 degrees and January having the lowest temperature of 17 degrees.

The approximate value of a condo or home in 2000 was $183,000 and $283,573 in 2011.

Lifestyle and Things to Do

Yarmouth offers a broad range of outdoor recreation opportunities to anyone, regardless of the age. Situated in the middle of this town is the Royal River Park that covers 40 acres of property and provides guests and locals with sidewalks that have beautiful views along Royal River, as well as picnic venues and a performance area to host free live concerts throughout summer.

Then there is the Yarmouth Clam Festival, an event that hundreds of people always look forward to during summer, the 3rd weekend of July. This tradition attracts hundreds of people from all parts of the US who enjoy the mouth-watering food, arts and music, competition, and events.

Beth Condon Memorial Pathway is a bicycle and pedestrian trail beginning at Portland Street and running along US Rt. 1 and links to the walkway of Royal River and ends at the Forest Falls Drive. It offers an easy and safe access to numerous businesses and shops alongside US Rt. 1.

Another point of interest is the Bayview Estuary Preserve that covers a 35-acre undeveloped property alongside Royal River, consisting of nearly ½ mile of river frontage, as well as freshwater and salt wetlands and forested uplands.
