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, just a thirty minute drive from Augusta, Waterville, and Belfast. Our population was 1,570 at the 2020 census, nearing its record high population of 1,659 in 1850. We have friendly people, beautiful ponds, hills, farms, blueberry fields, the annual Family & Friends Bluegrass Festival, and a total area of 43 square miles and 9 ponds, of which the largest is Sheepscot Pond, a State Fish Hatchery and local attraction.
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 high school choice, and many Palermo students attend Erskine Academy in China.
We are so happy to have you here!
