About Vassalboro

Vassalboro is a community nestled between the banks of the Kennebec River and the West Basin of China Lake. Fertile farmland, small villages, and gentle rolling hills give our town a unique character. Settled in 1760 and incorporated in 1771,Vassalboro has developed into a community committed to quality of life, economic opportunity, and a sound education system.

Our town has frontage on a major river (the Kennebec) and on four lakes and ponds and, as such, has outstanding recreational opportunities. It is also home to Duratherm Window Corporation, Natanis Golf Course (36 holes), and has some of the larger dairy farms in the Central Maine area.

We hope you'll take a moment to visit our little corner of the World Wide Web. We also hope you'll drop by and see us sometime...
