THE GARDINER GROWTH INITIATIVE –

Experience living history and so much more!

Welcome to Gardiner, Maine – a genuine American community where a charming and historic downtown frames a vibrant and eclectic entrepreneurial business culture.

Gardiner’s thriving downtown and historic district are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It’s a must-see stop for history lovers on their way to Acadia National Park or further “Downeast,” providing an inspiring glimpse into the golden industrial era in Maine.

Combine the living history of downtown Gardiner with our sparkling waterfront, distinctive eateries and unique shops, and you’ll see why our little city is such a completely wonderful place to visit and experience our rich and varied heritage… not to mention an ideal place to live and to do business.

Gardiner is right in the middle of everything, directly off Interstates 95 and 295, and not far from Maine’s glorious mid-coast – an advantageous central location with easy access to the bulk of Maine’s year-round population plus all points south to Boston and New York, north to Canada.

On this website you’ll find out all about our colorful community, our fascinating heritage tourism opportunities, our considerable economic advantages, and the spirit and people behind the Gardiner Main Street Program. Welcome!
