Set in Cumberland County, Gorham was first settled in 1736 by Captain John Phinney and his family, followed in 1738 by Hugh McLellan and Daniel Mosher. By 1743, the first sawmill was established by John Gorham at Little River. Without window-glass, the first dwellings were constructed of logs chinked with moss and clay. Gorham currently has a much smaller industrial infrastructure than it did in the earlier years. The majority of Gorham’s industry is based along the border with Westbrook, and many of the mills that formerly existed along the Presumpscot River are now under water, flooded with the construction of the Dundee Dam. In recent decades Gorham has increased in popularity as a bedroom community of Portland. Its residents and town officials have been confronted with various issues related to managing suburban growth in a historically rural town. Today, Gorham has grown from a small village to a flourishing town. Its popularity has attracted many new housing developments and businesses. Positioned near Sebago Lake, Gorham also offers a plethora of recreational activities such as trails for hiking and the river for kayaking, canoeing, and swimming.
It’s no secret that Gorham has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Make a day of it at Junction Bowl where you can have lunch, have a beer, bowl, and play in the arcade. It’s family fun for all! If the weather is cooperating, pick your own apples at Orchard Ridge Farm. Even if it’s cold or out of apple picking season, the farm store is worth the trip alone. Be sure to head over to Sidecar Wine Whiskey & Tapas Bar for live music and an extensive drink menu. For dinner, we suggest Lucky Thai for, of course, pad Thai but don’t miss the orange or pineapple chicken, too. Year round, people flock to Gorham to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Gorham, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.

As the Pine Tree State, Maine is known for having everything from cities to forests. Gorham is no exception. Warm, moist summers give way to cold winters, which means over-wintering insects, rodents, and other small wildlife need to find warm places to wait out the cold. The local extermination experts at our Scarborough, ME branch are used to dealing with mice, carpenter ants, bed bugs, termites, mosquitoes, ticks – and even the occasional cheeky raccoon or hiding bat. No matter the season, your pest control service needs will be taken care of by a local exterminator that knows the area and the pests that are common to it. In the summer, they know that the ponds and birdbaths many people have around their homes can be exactly where mosquitoes like to breed. They know that the ticks that come out during the summer months can transmit Lyme disease so while nobody can help the wooded areas around Shaw Park, they can help your backyard stay free from them. In the cooler months, they know mice can try to make their way into your garage – especially if that’s where you keep the 20 lb. bag of dog food! No matter what pest, any time of the year, our pest control treatments in Gorham can help, including:
