Richmond is located in Sagadahoc County, 17 miles south of the state Capital of Augusta and just east of Lewiston. The small town of Richmond sits on the west side of the Kennebec River, and is at the center of the historic "Tidewater Kennebec Region." It is often referred to as "the hole in the donut," with the towns of Wiscasset, Bath, Brunswick, Lewiston, Auburn and Augusta surrounding it. Richmond began as a shipbuilding town, and sea captains, merchants and boat builders constructed a fine collection of temple style Greek Revival homes that has put the town on the National Register of Historic Districts. Peacock Beach State Park is located just off Route 201 in Richmond, and makes an ideal spot for a family outing. It has a nice picnic area and a small beach with a lifeguard on duty. The Kennebec River provides fishing, boating, hiking and biking opportunities, and Richmond is just 23 miles to the Atlantic seacoast and beach activities. Nearby Bath has the Maine Maritime Museum, Reid State Park and the Sagadahoc Preservation. And, the neighboring town of Lewiston is home to the annual Great Falls Balloon Festival and the Festival de Joie.
