Once a dense forest, Buxton today is a thriving community. It borders the towns of Gorham to the northeast, Scarborough and Saco to the southeast, Dayton to the south, Hollis to the west and Standish to the northwest. Drained by Little River and the Saco River, Buxton includes the villages of Salmon Falls, Chicopee, Groveville, Bar Mills, West Buxton, and Buxton Center. The town boasts public parks, libraries, museum, church, grocery stores, clothing stores, a wool-carding mill and many more.

With Buxton’s premier parks, playgrounds and athletic fields, the neighborhoods of Buxton are favorites among children. The parks are well-mentioned and most of them are open from sunrise to sunset, offering arrays of activities to keep children active. They can go for picnic, swimming or for any other recreational activity they are interested in. The elders can follow the walking trail or just sit in one of the park, enjoying the serenity. For an excellent inventory of Maine Books, you can visit Berry Memorial Library or West Buxton public library. The Buxton Powder House, one of only three powder houses left standing in Maine, offers an opportunity to see a piece of local history.  Located 250 yards off the west side of Route 22 in Buxton Center, the Powder House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Similarly, a brief visit to Buxton-Hollis Historical Society, gives a valuable insight into the rich history of the town.

In the recent years, Buxton has changed significantly however the town has still retained its rural characteristics.
