The Kennebec Valley spans 23 communities from Maine’s capital city, Augusta, to Gardiner to Windsor to Monmouth to Readfield and everywhere in between. An original 1629 Pilgrim settlement, Augusta is both the capital city of the Pine Tree State and the service center of a Micropolitan with 75,000 residents. Maine’s capital area is rich in history, culture, art, educational resources, dining, industry, and retail shopping. In the Kennebec Valley, you experience the kind of Maine we usually keep for ourselves.
The Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce is a business association of some 700 businesses, industries and organizations in the capital area. The Chamber's teamwork approach is key in building a stronger economy, better business environment and higher quality of life for the 23-community area.
