Windham is a large town in Cumberland County, Maine. Located just to the northwest of Portland, and including both South and North Windham, the town had a population of 17,001 during the 2010 census. Its close proximity to Portland has given Windham a suburban feel, and ballooned its population since World War II, with every decade seeing a double-digit increase in Windham's population.
As a suburb, Windham's residents are relatively affluent for the state of Maine. While the median household income for Maine residents is only $46,974, Windham's is $57,862, putting the town well above the state average.
