Sidney, a fast-growing, picturesque central Maine town of just over four thousand people, is located between Augusta and Waterville along the west side of the Kennebec River. Sidney was settled in the 1760's as part of Vassalboro and was incorporated as a town on January 30, 1792. The town was named for Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586) who was English poet, courtier and soldier, and is remembered as one of the most prominent figures of the Elizabethan Age.
Once an agricultural community known especially for its production of hay and apples, Sidney is still home to working farms and retains its rural character. Sidney's original nineteen schoolhouses have been replaced by the highly respected James H. Bean Elementary School that is part of the Messalonskee School District. Bordered on the west by Messalonskee Lake, Sidney is a welcoming community that offers recreational opportunities, successful businesses, an excellent education for its children, and friendly neighbors!
