YORK HAS A NICE LONG BEACH. Part of it is sand and part is gravel. We stopped at the gravel beach (fewer people there) and poked around for awhile. photos attached.

The First Parish Church is the oldest religious society in continued existence in Maine, everyone who lived here had to be a member. The 1st meeting house was built in 1635, the structure that you see today is the fourth church, built in 1747.
We didn't go inside but the plaque outside says that it was restored to it's appearance in the late Colonial period.

I think we were there before any of the buildings were open for the day, the website says they are open Monday-Saturday 10-5 from June-Columbus Day weekend. We had a look at some of the exteriors of the buildings and peeked in a few of the windows. If you want to tour the 8 buildings, it's $5 for one building and $10 for all 8. You can get tickets at Jefferds' Tavern.
Two of the buildings have guided tours so you'll want to check the website for times:

Elizabeth Perkins House
The other 6 buildings are self-guided:
The Old Gaol (Jail)-photo #2
Jefferds' Tavern-photo #3
The Old School House-photo #4
The George Marshall Store Gallery
John Hancock Wharf and Warehouse
The Ramsdell House

Stonewall Kitchen products are sold across the USA and perhaps beyond. Delicious jams, jellies, mustards etc. etc. At the York headquarters, you can sample before you buy. Often a cook is preparing something delicious that you can also sample. Outside the headquarters is a magnificent flower garden with plants well labeled. Back inside, you can look through windows into the actual canning and packing operations in progress.
By the way, be sure to try their Sour Cherry Jam. wow!

The Old Burying Ground is in the center of York Village. There are headstones dating back to the early 1700s.
The picture is the grave of Mary Nassan, also known as the "witches grave". It is said to be haunted, probably due to the uniqueness of her grave, which uses a headstone, a carved heelstone, and a large slab in between. The slab is thought to have been put there to keep the witch in her grave. Most likely it was to keep animals out .
