Welcome to Palermo!

Palermo is a special place. It is a small town in Waldo County, Maine, United States. Palermo is well situated in central Maine - a thirty minute drive from Augusta, Waterville and/or Belfast.

The population was 1,535 at the 2010 census, nearing its record high population of 1,659 in 1850. Palermo is known for its friendly people and beautiful lakes, ponds, hills, farms, and blueberry fields. The town has a total area of 43 square miles, of which 3 square miles is water, chiefly Sheepscot Pond.

Palermo is part of the Sheepscot Valley Regional School Unit (RSU 12). K-8 students go to Palermo Consolidated School, a school with around 140 students. RSU 12 has a high school of choice, with most Palermo students attending Erskine Academy in South China, Maine.
