Kennebunk, Maine is a relatively small community of a bit more than 10 thousand residents. This is a far cry from the town’s early days. When first founded as a trading post back in 1621, the town grew into shipbuilding and served as a shipping center. There was also some light manufacturing done there. Kennebunk was originally a part of the town of Wells, but that changed in 1820 when it became its own town.

The total area of the town itself is almost 44 square miles, but almost 9 square miles of that area is water. Other towns and cities nearby Kennebunk include Kennebunkport, Arundel, Alfred, Lyman, Wells, and Sanford. Kennebunkport and Kennebunk actually merge into a single school district comprised of Kennebunk Elementary, Sea Road School, Middle School of the Kennebunks, and Kennebunk High School. In 2000, an alternative high school was founded, called the New School. It is accredited by the state and has a focus on community-based learning.
