Yarmouth is a town in Cumberland County, Maine, United States, located twelve miles north of the state's largest city, Portland. The town was settled in 1636 and incorporated in 1849. Its population was 8,349 in the 2010 census. As of 2015's estimation, this is about 0.6% of Maine's total population. Yarmouth is part of the Portland–South Portland-Biddeford Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town's proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and its location on the banks of the Royal River, which empties into Casco Bay less than a mile away, means it is a prime location as a harbor. Ships were built in the harbor mainly between 1818 and the 1870s, at which point demand declined dramatically. Meanwhile, the Royal River's four waterfalls within Yarmouth resulted in the foundation of almost sixty mills between 1674 and 1931. Yarmouth's Main Street sits about 45 feet above sea level. The annual Yarmouth Clam Festival attracts around 120,000 people (around thirteen times the number of residents in the town) over the course of the three-day weekend. Today, Yarmouth is a popular dining destination, with (as of September 2016) thirteen sit-down restaurants. This equates to an average of one restaurant per square mile of land area. Yarmouth is easily accessed via two exits on each side of Interstate 295. U.S. Route 1 also passes through the town (in an elevated fashion over its center). It has been designated a Tree City USA community every year since 1979. Wikipedia
