Town of Standish
175 Northeast Road, Standish, ME 04084
Located sixteen miles west-northwest of Portland at the southern tip of Sebago Lake, Standish is one of the geographically largest communities in Maine. Over the past decade Standish has been the fastest growing municipality in the region and is a rapidly emerging suburb of the Greater Portland area.
What is now the Town of Standish was originally surveyed and granted to Captain Pearson about 1750 for services rendered in the siege of Louisburg. Initially named Pearsontown, the Town was renamed Standish upon incorporation on November 30, 1785 in honor of Miles Standish.
The Town has four population centers; Steep Falls on the Saco River, Standish Village in the center of the Town, Sebago Lake Village and the Whites Bridge section of Town. There are numerous sites in the Town that are on the national Historic Preservation Register.
The Town is the home to St. Josephs College, 1st Technology, Fairpoint New England and the Portland Water District's Ozone Treatment Plant. The Town provides the source water from Sebago Lake for the Portland Water District.
