Wayne is a small town 15 miles west of Augusta. The town was incorporated in 1798 and named after Revolutionary War General Anthony Wayne.
The town is located near excellent restaurants, a world class Shakespearean Theater, mountains, whitewater rafting, and many other adventures. Visitors will find a classic New England Village with two churches, one library, a recreation center, a general store and a corner store, and specialty shops.
Wayne’s population doubles in the summer as visitors from all over the world visit to swim and sail in the seven lakes and ponds, pick strawberries and blueberries, eat local vegetables and Maine seafood, and enjoy a relaxed life in small town Maine. During the summer, Wayne is home to Camp Androscoggin.
