The Canibas tribe originally inhabited the area we now call Waterville. The Canibas lived there until 1692 when their village was burned down during King William's War. The original European settlement was part of Winslow, but Waterville broke away when residents on the west side of the Kennebec River became frustrated that they couldn't cross the river to attend town meetings. Waterville was incorporated as a city in its own right in 1802. It built its economy on its strong fishing, agriculture, lumbering, and shipbuilding industries.

While Waterville's downtown area isn't as vital as it once was, there's plenty to get excited about in Waterville. The suburban areas are on the up and up, with retail outlets, restaurants, and other new businesses enhancing these residential zones. The local Colby College gives the city a youthful energy. Despite recent developments, Waterville is still small enough to retain its original charm.

What time of the year should you visit Waterville, Maine?

Waterville's humid, continental climate brings hot and steamy summer days and icy winter ones. Avoid the extremes and enjoy the best Waterville weather in spring or fall.

Spring brings average highs in the low 40s to mid-60s. Fall is marginally warmer, with typical highs in the mid-40s to high 60s. Waterville's humid climate does bring rain throughout the year. No season is spared of showers, but October and November get more rain than any other months, both averaging 4.36 inches. It's nothing an umbrella can't protect against, but something to be conscious of when planning your trip.

Average summer temps in the mid- to high-70s are ideal, but you never know when a heat wave will hit. Waterville temperatures have been known to reach 100, especially during July. Even if the temperature doesn't soar, most experts agree it's not worth battling the summer crowds. Mid-year is peak tourist season for Waterville, and local hotels charge accordingly. If you can travel on either side of this season, you'll save a substantial amount of money.

Winter days regularly dip below freezing, making traveling during the period from December through February unpleasant. There is some appeal for skiers, though, as Waterville is within driving distance of Pinnacle Peak, Eaton Mountain, and Titcomb Mountain. If you can brave the cold, bargains can be found after the festive season.
