What people are saying about Gorham

Gorham is a GREAT spot!!
We retired to Maine 12/2017 and ended up in Gorham. It is right outside of Portland and there is SO MUCH to do here! We love it!! There is one Retirement Community (The Gorham House) but we don\'t know much about it. However, I can try to answer questions about the area. Consider Maine - cooler climate agrees with us and networking has made life amazing!
