Situated on the Medomak River, Waldoboro is an old seafaring town with a proud shipbuilding past. Its main drag is lined with houses representing numerous architectural styles: Cape Cod, Queen Anne, Stick, Greek Revival, and Italianate. The town was settled largely by Germans in the mid-1700s, and you can still visit the old German Meeting House, built in 1772.

Nowadays, Waldoboro attracts artists and skilled artisans who ply their talents in farmhouses tucked along the winding country roads. In the heart of the village, the charming old Waldo Theatre has been fully restored and once again shows films and hosts theatrical events and films.
