The Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce serves the following communities: Athens, Anson, Canaan, Cornville, Embden, Madison, Mercer, Smithfield, Skowhegan, Solon.
In the heart of our service area sits the town of Skowhegan. Settled in 1773, it’s brimming with American History yet is host to modern businesses such as SAPPI Fine Paper, New Balance Shoe, Howard P. Fairfield, and Redington-Fairview General Hospital.
Skowhegan is also nationally known as the home of Senator Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman U.S. Senator. The Margaret Chase Smith Library houses the Senator’s memorabilia and serves as a museum and educational center on her life and career.
Downtown Skowhegan, a Mainstreet Maine Community, is watched over by the world’s largest sculptured Indian… a 62 ft. giant crafted by the renowned sculptor Bernard Langlais of Cushing.
