Living in Lisbon

Lisbon is a somewhat small town located in the state of Maine. With a population of 9,743 people and two associated neighborhoods, Lisbon is the 23rd largest community in Maine.

Of important note, Lisbon is also a town of artists. Lisbon has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Lisbon’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Lisbon telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 16.77% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
