Welcome to Palermo

Palermo is a small town in the southwest corner of Waldo County, Maine, United States. Palermo was settled in 1804 by Stephen Belden, and legend has it that a crate of Sicilian lemons provided the inspiration for our town's name. We are well situated in central Maine - a thirty minute drive from Augusta, Waterville, and Belfast. Our 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, beautiful lakes, ponds, hills, farms, blueberry fields, and the annual Family & Friends Bluegrass Festival. The town has a total area of 43 square miles and nine ponds, the largest of which is Sheepscot Pond, a recreational destination and State Fish Hatchery.

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.

We are so happy to have you here!
