N orth Yarmouth is often assumed to be part of the town of Yarmouth — especially since North Yarmouth Academy is located in Yarmouth. To make it more confusing for the historian, Ancient North Yarmouth encompassed seven current-day towns, so our early history is also the history of our neighboring communities.
Our town retains the name of the original 1680 plantation of North Yarmouth in the Province of Maine. Our territory then included the land now occupied by North Yarmouth, Yarmouth, Chebeague Island, Pownal, Cumberland, Freeport, Harpswell, and the Mere Point portion of Brunswick.
