Located in the heart of The Yorks, on the scenic Maine Coast, historic York Village has a great past and an even more promising future. Founded in 1631, York was the shire town, serving as the provincial capital for the area. York Village now integrates elements of its nearly four centuries of history. The Village is home to the Museums of Old York, including the original Old Gaol (Old Jail, built in 1719), and we invite visitors to stroll and shop at leisure through our historic buildings of unique shops, boutiques, and galleries, enjoy friendly cafes, and celebrate the charm and local color of Maine.
From our main street, York Village brings visitors and business to York Harbor, Long Sands Beach, the Nubble Lighthouse, or York Beach. Join us in York Village and experience the essence of New England and “the way life should be”.
