Eight times a year, visitors travel from all over North America and various parts of the world to attend nationally and internationally recognized auctions at James D. Julia Auction House in Fairfield, Maine. The diverse offering of quality antiques, fair and honest representation, the excitement and thrill of participating live is what continually draws these bidders. Over the years however, a number of visitors have found reasons to extend their stay. Some have even relocated. Maine has tremendous wealth of offerings.

For well over 150 years now, drawn by the beauty, the hunting, the fishing, the hiking, and in general, the extraordinary opportunity for those experiences; travelers from all over North America and the world have made Maine a destination spot to visit.
