Fayette is a beautiful, small town community located approximately 19 miles northwest of the state capital of Augusta. Fayette shares some of the most beautiful lakes and ponds in central Maine with the bordering towns of Mount Vernon, Readfield, and Wayne.
Fayette was first settled as Starling Plantation in 1781 and became incorporated as the town of Fayette on February 28, 1795.
Fayette is known for its rural nature, seasonal resorts, and private camps. Every summer Echo Lake comes alive as Camps Winnebago and Vega host hundreds of young boys and girls as they have for generations. Families come to Fayette year after year to spend a day, a week, or an entire summer at their summer homes on the lake. After spending time in the idyllic town, many have decided to make Fayette their permanent home.
Fishing on one of Fayette’s 31.5 square miles of lakes and ponds draws anglers from all over. Hiking, snowmobiling, and fishing are just a few among many sports to enjoy.
With a neighbor helping neighbor attitude, Fayette is a wonderful place to visit or call home.
