Bremen is a small coastal town in Lincoln County, Maine. It is located on the eastern side of the Pemaquid Peninsula, facing the Medomak River and Muscongus Bay. Once part of Bristol, it became incorporated on February 19, 1828.
The town has a total area of 27.4 square miles, of which 16.5 square miles is land and 10.9 square miles is water. According to the 2000 census, Bremen has a year-round population of 782, which increases extensively in the summer. Two ponds, Webber and McCurdy, lie entirely within Bremen; two others, Pemaquid and Biscay, form the town's western boundary.
Several large islands lie just offshore in the Medomak River and Muscongus Bay, including Bremen Long Island and Hog Island, home of the nationally known Audubon Camp and Todd Wildlife Sanctuary.
The main industry in town is centered on the coastal waterfront, primarily lobstering and clamming. The town is also home to several small businesses and cottage industries. The Bremen landscape is primarily forested, with occasional fields offering spectacular views of ponds and coastal waters.
Children in Bremen attend the Great Salt Bay School in Damariscotta and, generally, Lincoln Academy in Newcastle. The town has a Library, a Church, a Post Office and a Volunteer Fire Department. The old Bremen Town Hall is on the National Register of Historic Places. Bremen retains the town meeting form of government.
