Richmond, Maine: A Small Town with a Big Heart

If you're looking for a place to visit or call home, consider Richmond, Maine. We're blessed with unparalleled beauty, from the rolling hills that surround us to the timeless Kennebec River that defines our downtown.

Swan Island - on the Historic Register

Visitors come from miles away to Swan Island, just a stone’s throw from downtown Richmond. Four miles of trails and camping are yours to enjoy as you share the island with deer and bald eagles.

Shopping Here, Shopping There

Downtown Richmond has some small shops that take you back to an earlier time. Whether shopping for hardware or looking for a special gift, you can probably find something of interest right in town.

But when you get a hankering for more shopping choices, you can reach the shopping nexus of Topsham about 20 minutes away. Or enjoy the cultural offerings of the Augusta Civic Center about 30 minutes in the other direction. And if your interest is the ocean, you'll find the beautiful Maine coast just 20 minutes away - get there by car or boat.
