Yarmouth is a wonderful community that has focused its efforts on improving and moving forward. Yarmouth has a very strong sense of pride like no other town. We support our sports teams, the arts, and local businesses.
I absolutely love Yarmouth. It combines many aspects that are so wonderful about Maine. There is coastline, forests, rivers and lakes, built up village areas with local businesses, and quite neighborhoods. The school system is fantastic, the residents are kind and always willing to help those around them.
