WELCOME TO DOWNTOWN NORWAY
Nestled in the picturesque foothills of Western Maine,
the town of Norway is a vital cultural and commercial center.
Its bustling Main Street is characterized by unique, locally owned shops, restaurants, and other businesses housed in architecturally significant buildings from the early 19th and 20th century. On the outskirts of town you'll find the natural beauty of Lake Pennesseewassee, Shephard's Farm Preserve which features Bernard Langlais sculptures, part of the statewide Langlais Art Trail, the unique old growth white pine trees in Ordway Grove, and the beautiful views and summer and winter trails in Roberts Farm Preserve.
This scenic village of about 5,000 residents was designated a Main Street Maine community in 2002 in honor of its character and historic assets, and the potential to build a thriving downtown upon these virtues. Whether you are looking for an afternoon lunch, shopping, a yoga class, a massage and a haircut, entertainment, a family vacation, or a place to put down some roots, Norway beckons.
