Welcome to Somerville, Maine 

We are a quiet rural town with a tradition of community.

Many of us are from families who settled here in the 1800s; the rest of us moved here because we value the peace and privacy of small town life.

We are located about half an hour inland from the midcoast, close enough to access its many diversions, but far enough to escape the bustle. 

We wouldn't have it any other way!


Although we don't have the dramatic scenery of the coast or the mountains, we enjoy the more personal beauty of our backyards. We have a few ponds, a few hills, lots of forest, and miles of dirt roads -which keeps us from going too fast and missing the beauty around us! 

Most of us like it this way (it sure keeps life interesting in mud season!) Going forward, we are working on rebuilding our dirt roads and updating our comprehensive plan, so we can keep it this way for generations to come. 



We may not have a general store or a post office, but we do have a friendly town office.  
Stop in and visit!
