Located in the heart of The Yorks, on the scenic Maine Coast, historic York Village is a town of historic buildings, boutique shopping, art galleries, and fine dining. Founded in 1631, York was the shire town, serving as the provincial capital for the area. York Village now integrates elements of its nearly four centuries of history. The Village is home to the Museums of Old York, including the original Old Gaol (Old Jail, built in 1719).
The Village would not be complete without our cherished York Harbor and Marina. Recognized as one of Maine’s loveliest and least-crowded seaside resorts, the harbor escaped the commercialization that altered some of Maine’s better-known oceanfront resorts. Most importantly, though, York Harbor is a year-round four season destination that allows you to enjoy the New England seaside when all the other summer resorts have closed.
From our main street, York Village connects visitors and business to Long Sands Beach, Short Sands Beach, and Cape Neddick (home of the Nubble Lighthouse). Join us in York Village and experience the essence of New England and “the way life should be.”
The 6th annual Marketfest will be held October 16 & 17, 2015 on the York Village Green near town hall, and will feature live music, historic reenactments, artisan demonstrations, and other special events. For more info, visit http://marketfestyorkmaine.com/.
