New Gloucester is located between the two largest metropolitan centers in Maine, Portland to the south and Lewiston-Auburn to the north. An easy commute via Interstate 95 in either direction brings the resident or visitor to a variety of entertainment options as well as numerous employment opportunities.
The town treasures its rural character yet seeks to blend its future growth with the traditions of its past. A prime example of this is the Shaker Community in the west and the Pineland business campus to the east. New Gloucester boasts more than 400 home businesses as well as several concentrations of more traditional businesses. With expansive views of the Intervale from the top of Gloucester Hill and the White Mountains from the Pineland Campus touring New Gloucester can be truly breath taking.
