Westport Island is located on Maine’s mid-coast in Lincoln County in Sheepscot Bay. Surrounded by the Sheepscot River to the East and the Back and Sasanoa Rivers to the West, Westport Island is a quiet and picture perfect small Maine community of about 720 year-around residents, which swells to about 1200 in the summer. Originally known as Jeremysquam, Westport Island was incorporated as part of Freetown (now Edgecomb) in 1774. In 1828, Westport became a separate town.

Westport Island flourished in the early 1800’s as a fishing and farming community—one of the most prosperous in Maine. Today, Westport Island is home to a broad cross section of residents from families who have lived here for generations to new residents and retirees who are proud to call Westport Island home.
