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...

Residents of Vassalboro Can Now Pay their Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments Online

The Town of Vassalboro is pleased to announce our participation in the Maine PayPort Online service; a convenient way for citizens to pay their personal Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Town of Vassalboro already participates in Maine PayPort OTC, an over the counter solution that allows individuals and organizations to be able to pay for any service, fee, license, or product offered by the municipality, using a Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card. While municipal participation in Maine PayPort is optional, the service has now grown to include over 110 municipalities.

Maine PayPort Online is a service offered by a third party working in partnership with the State of Maine and this municipality.
