About Vassalboro

In 2021, Vassalboro celebrated its 250th anniversary since incorporation. First settled in 1760, Vassalboro is today a community committed to a rural quality of life, a sound education system and good old Yankee frugality. Local roads are in good condition, recreational opportunities abound and educational offerings are good.

Vassalboro celebrated its 250th anniversary in many ways. Starting in January, the Town flicked the switch to solar to provide enough stable, reduced cost electricity to meet 85% of municipal and school demands including streetlights which are now converted to lower demand LED lights. On the anniversary date of April 26th, Monument Park in East Vassalboro was rededicated after three years of work improving this site. A float for fishing is now available to the public at this park. As of June 1st, by agreement with the Kennebec Water District and with help of many volunteers, the Town created a mile long trail leading to and running along Red Brook with a connection back to the existing mile trail in the Town Forest north of the ball fields in East Vassalboro. On the weekend following Labor Day each year, many events are planned as part of the annually occurring Vassalboro Days.

Vassalboro education is governed by the School Board of the Town of Vassalboro with PK, K - 8 provided at the Vassalboro Community School (VCS) to roughly 400 students. Vassalboro is relatively unique in offering school choice for grades 9 -12. Most high school students attend Erskine Academy but students also enroll in Waterville, Winslow and other area high schools.

To restore an alewife run to China Lake up Outlet Stream, two dams were removed and two fish ladders were built. The third and final fish ladder was completed in 2021. Alewives improve water quality, the sport fishery and lakeshore property values while annual alewife harvests provide new revenues to Town coffers.

Vassalboro is home to the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and the Kennebec Water District’s treatment facility that serves five area municipalities. Also in Vassalboro, is the 36-hole Natanis Golf Course, Duratherm Window Corporation, major Kennebec Land Trust holdings with trails and the Alonzo Garcelon Wildlife Management Area containing Spectacle Pond.

Vassalboro - a great place to live and work!
