SACO boasts a rich heritage along the northern side of the Saco River as it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Young William Pepperrell purchased some 5000 acres in 1716 including the timber privileges of an additional 4500 acres along the river. Since then there have been numerous divisions with large homesteads that have been divided into neighborhoods and family plots. Historic Homes of Distinction line the Main Streets with an array of different architectural styles and designs from Greek Revival to Queen Anne to Italianate.
The town grew through Saw Mills and Boat Building until the Mills opened and became the major employer. Camp Ellis and Ferry Beach sections of town are still favored with waterfront and water view properties along the Saco River and the Atlantic Ocean. Saco is a beautiful Picturesque New England city where much of the original Colonial touches and feelings still exist today. A lovely place to visit and live.
