Wiscasset is a thriving and diverse community with unique assets and an amazing infrastructure for a town our size. Visitors can shop for anything from antiques to organic food, dine on the waterfront, visit nationally significant historical places, stay in first class accommodations and choose from myriad recreation and other activities during their stay.  Wiscasset truly is an incredible place to live, work and play. Come see for yourself!

Living and working in Wiscasset embodies all of what life along the Maine coast should be, and so much more! Wiscasset boasts one of the State’s most vibrant working waterfronts, buzzing with the summertime activities of lobster fishing, sport fishing, and clam and worm digging (National Geographic proclaimed Wiscasset the “Worm capital of the World.”) It’s a place where life slows to the ebb and flow of the tides of the Sheepscot and Back rivers. It’s a place for waterfront dining, lazily kayaking the river, or for quietly hiking the trails through one of the State’s most prized scenic recreational areas. Both the community and the surrounding area are rich in heritage and cultural diversity, home to thriving arts and artisan communities. Nearby are theaters, white sand beaches, world renowned shopping centers, major concert venues, and sports arenas. Wiscasset offers something for everyone.

Doing business in Wiscasset doesn’t mean doing without. Wiscasset offers municipal water and sewer with ample capacity, three-phase power throughout much of the town, advanced telecommunications capacity with SONNET redundancy, DSL, Cable, and wireless Internet capacity. In addition, rail, deep water ports, and a general aviation airport are located in town, providing a ready access to local, national, or global markets.
