When you think of some of the richest towns in Maine, some immediately come to mind. Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Kennebunkport. Those are all in the top 10. But according to the 2010 census, the richest town is one you probably never thought of. 

Every ten years, the U.S. Census compiles data collected about the U.S. population, including per capita income for each town in Maine. Per capita simply means the average income per person.

Based on 2010 US census data, the town with the highest per capita income in the state of Maine is North Oxford, Maine at $38,462.

I'm sure you have two questions. Where is North Oxford and how are they the richest town in Maine?

Well here they are on the map:

 

How are they number one? The 2010 population of North Oxford is 24. Yep. 24 people live in North Oxford. 14 males and 10 females. Two of the population are children: one boy and one girl. A tiny sample size with larger incomes makes them number one on the list.

EDIT: Technically North Oxford isn't a town, it's an unorganized territory, but everyone is counted in the census so that helped get them the number one spot too.

Now when you're talking towns with a real population, you guessed it: Cape Elizabeth wins with a per capita income of $37,983. Falmouth is third, Kennebunkport is fourth and Falmouth Foreside is fifth.
