A Little History

Settled in 1765, Belfast’s past and present speak of its creativity, innovation, tradition, community, and independence. Today, Belfast is that rare combination of quiet small town with an active social and cultural life that is attractive to residents and visitors alike. It is the economic hub and county seat of Waldo County with a dynamic working waterfront, picturesque sea captains’ mansions, the country’s oldest shoe store, and more art galleries than any city of its size in the state.

A Lot of Heart

An engaged community of caring people, Belfast has volunteers actively working to make this place we love even better for all.  

From our local Main Street organization to our Chamber of Commerce, Creative Coalition, and citizen committees at City Hall – local folks are working hard for economic health in a way that is in keeping with our authentic culture and heritage.

Our Start

In March of 2010, Our Town Belfast became a Maine Downtown Network Community and continued the efforts, becoming a nationally designated Maine Street Maine community in June of 2011.  As a member of the National Main Street Center and National Trust for Historic Preservation, we follow a four-point approach to downtown revitalization that has been proven time and again over the course of forty years in 2200+ communities throughout the country.
