Welcome to the Mechanic Falls Homepage

Mechanic Falls, incorporated in 1893 as the 461st town in Maine, is about 11 square miles in size, is 10 miles west of Lewiston / Auburn, and 10 miles southeast of the Oxford Hills region.

A town of 3,032 residents, Mechanic Falls lies along the bank of the Little Androscoggin and used to be a thriving mill community.

During the 1980's, the final mill closed and the town struggled economically. Many jobs were lost and folks had to seek work in other communities.

In the 90's, though, Mechanic Falls experienced something of a renaissance and underwent a dramatic renewal and our small local businesses continue to do well today. 

We invite you to visit, live and do business in our town. It is a tight-knit community that offers friendship, safety, small town charm and opportunity.
