Our Area

Area Information

The Skowhe­gan Area Cham­ber of Com­merce serves the fol­low­ing com­mu­ni­ties: Anson, Athens, Canaan, Cornville, Emb­den, Madi­son, Mer­cer, Norridgewock, Skowhe­gan, Smith­field and Solon.

In the heart of our ser­vice area sits the town of Skowhegan. Set­tled in 1773, it’s brim­ming with American His­tory yet is host to mod­ern busi­nesses such as SAPPI Fine Paper, New Bal­ance Shoe, Howard P. Fair­field, and Redington-​Fairview Gen­eral Hospital.

Skowhe­gan is also nation­ally known as the home of Sen­a­tor Mar­garet Chase Smith, the first woman U.S. Sen­a­tor. The Mar­garet Chase Smith Library houses the Senator’s mem­o­ra­bilia and serves as a museum and edu­ca­tional cen­ter on her life and career.

Down­town Skowhe­gan, a Main­street Maine Com­mu­nity, is watched over by the world’s largest sculp­tured Indian… a 62 ft. giant crafted by the renowned sculp­tor Bernard Langlais of Cushing.
