It is a very quaint community that encompasses many different towns, Gardiner, Pittston, West Gardiner and Randolph. We have several restaurants, nice little donut shops, beer making supply store, local post office, many old homes from the early 1800's - Captain's homes. Very historic, waterfront, Kennebec River runs right through these towns. We support and encourage to buy local!

Pittston is a small town, but it is close to Gardiner, ME. Gardiner is currently developing a lot and is really improving due to a push by Gardiner Main Street. We have new businesses coming to the area (small businesses, but quaint). We are close to the Capital Augusta, Maine where you can find many jobs. Most people commute to Bath Iron Works, professionals work in Brunswick and even commute to Portland, ME. The hospital in Augusta was just newly built and has state of the art facilities as well. Where Portland, ME is quickly becoming the "new Boston", Brunswick (30 min away) is becoming the "new Portland" and Gardiner is becoming the "new Brunswick". Lots of growth and opportunity with a small town feel.
It is not the city, so houses are well separated for the most part. It is country living!
