Norway is a small town located in the western hills of Oxford County, Maine. The mountains, lakes and rivers of the surrounding area provides ample hiking and biking trails, fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking. Golf is available at several nearby country clubs, and the famous Oxford Plains Speedway is less than five miles from Norway. In autumn, the hills around Norway turn brilliant red, gold and orange, making this an exciting time to visit and explore the small towns and backroads of western Maine, searching for antiques and handmade collectibles. Wintertime brings alpine and cross -country skiers to nearby Sunday River Ski Resort. Downtown Norway is an interesting mix of old and new, and for decades, Norway was where farmers came to trade and laborers worked at one of several wood-turning mills in town. Today, several historic homes are open for tours, including the Dr. Augustus French House, Tucker Block, the Denison-Hathaway House, and also the Norway Opera House. The architecture is a mix of different styles and constructed of wood and brick, and is some of the best examples of the period to be found in Maine. This charming village set among the hills and lakes of western Maine is a quiet and peaceful vacation retreat.
