The small town of Gorham has primarily had a tourism based economy for many years. It boasts over 600 motel rooms & 16 restaurants from which to choose. Most lodging in the area is convenient to churches, dining, & shopping (tax free!)
Through the years, Gorham has had many changes. Incorporated in 1836, it only had 150 inhabitants. By the early 1850's, Gorham was chosen as the site for the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad (later the Grand Trunk) major repair shops and became a true railroad town. Tourism developed hand-in-hand with the railroad and made Gorham a relatively prosperous town for most of the late19th century.
Alpine House, the Gorham House and the Willis House were all part of this new growth anddevelopment. Most people are unaware of Gorham's rich and varied past. Please visit the museum located on Railroad Street and see the "History of Gorham" which reveals the town's past!
