Hermon

Just west of Bangor, Hermon is located in close proximity to I-95, other major transportation routes and rail service. Hermon provides a pleasant living environment in a rural/urban setting. Its 4,000 residents live in a town that incorporates rolling hills, deep, clear ponds, and a scenic countryside, just minutes from major retail, education and employment centers.

Route 2, the main east-west artery through town, connects the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad and Freedom Park, a thriving and privately developed industrial park, with Interstate 95. Hermon is the home of Northern Maine Junction, the center of railroad activities for northern and eastern Maine.

History

Incorporated June 13, 1814 Hermon was settled in the late 1700’s and the focus of the economy was farming. When railroads became prominent in the 19th century, Hermon became a shipping point for pine and spruce. The railroad legacy can be found today, with a terminus of the Maine Central Railroad and the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad an important part of local economic activity. Farming also still remains, with tracts of farm land abutting forests and lakes within the town’s 39.44 square mile area.
