About Palmyra


Palmyra is located in Central Maine about 30 miles northwest of Bangor and just minutes away from Interstate 95. 

Palmyra has 38.5 square miles of land area where approximately 2000 residents currently reside.  Most of the land area in Palmyra is agricultural/residential, but there are also a variety of businesses located in the commercial districts of town.

Some areas of interest include the Madawaska Bog Wildlife Preserve, Palmyra Town Park, and Veterans Memorial Monument (located near the park entrance).  The Town Park is located on Main Street behind the Town Hall and it offers a picnic area, softball field, basketball court, and an ice skating rink.

 Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking, and golfing are just a few of the outdoor activities that can be enjoyed in town. 

 Although the appearance of Palmyra has changed somewhat over the years, the small-town atmosphere of this community remains.  New homes and businesses have been built.  They stand among the older homes in town—many which were built by the earliest settlers in the early 1800’s.  The Town Hall on Main Street was built in 1870 and, other than a new coat of paint here and there, remains much like it did 143 years ago.
