Town of Standish

Cumberland CountyStandish is a town in Cumberland County, settled in 1750 and incorporated on November 30, 1785 from Pearsontown Plantation.

Named in honor of Captain Miles Standish, the military leader of the Plymouth Colony, the town has a very long shoreline on Sebago Lake in its southwest corner, including its Lower Bay. The Saco River defines its western boundary.

Both a recreational area and suburb of Portland, the town is served by Maine Routes 11, 25, 25A, 35, 35A, 114 and 237.

The historic Daniel Marrett House was the storage place for coins from Portland banks in anticipation of a British attack in 1812.
