|Greater Waterville, Maine - Introduction|
Waterville lies on the western bank of the Kennebec River,
adjoining Fairfield, in Somerset County, on the north. Winslow lies
opposite on the east side of the river, Sidney forms the southern bound-
ary, and West Waterville, the western. The town is 6 miles long, and
about 2 in width. West Waterville was formed from it in 1873.
The eastern and western lines of the Maine Central railway form a
junction at the village; and extensive repair shops of the railroad
company are there located. The principal stream in town is the
Messalonske, which furnishes power near the village for several manu-
factories, among which are a grist-mill, a sash and blind factory, a
shovel-handle factory, a tannery, a boot and shoe-shank factory, etc.
On the Kennebec are two large cotton factories of the Lockwood Com-
pany, and one or two saw-mills.
Waterville has three national banks, the Ticonic, Merchant's and
People's National; and one Savings-bank. The Waterville Mail, pub-
lished every Friday by Maxham and Wing, has long been reputed and
deservedly, as being a sheet of sterling value. The Colby Echo, pub-
lished every month by the students of the University, well sustains its
place among college publications. The Sentinel is new and newsy.
Greater Waterville Area Code is 207
