A BRIEF HISTORY OF MAINE. 

BY 

Jolin Clair Minot. 



All of us who are sons and daughters of Maine are justly 
proud of the place held in history by our native State, for we 
know that in all the great sisterhood of the Union there is no 
State with a past which gives its children more reason for pride. 
While students and writers for a long time neglected the early 
history of Maine, they have in recent years made more general 
use of the wealth of material here, and gradually the world has 
realized that back at the beginning of things on this continent 
Maine was playing a part worthy of a State whose record of 
achievements has been so long and brilliant in later generations. 

There is no need to delve into the misty traditions of the visits 
of the Northmen to our shores. There is good reason to believe 
that they explored the shores of New England centuries before 
Columbus was born, but all that belongs to legendary lore rather 
than to the realm of recorded history. But after the New 
World became well known to Europe the shores of Maine were 
visited by the earliest explorers, and this section soon became 
the center of the long and bloody struggle between England and 



42 MAINE REFERENCE ^lANUAL. 

France for the possession of the continent. More than one 
early voyager sailed up the Penobscot River in search of the 
fabled Norumbega with its wonderful columns of crystal and 
silver. 

Not until the beginning of the 17th century did the explora- 
tions have definite results. The voyages of Gosnold (1602), 
Pring (1603), Weymouth (1605), Champlain (1605), and John 
Smith (1614) were the most notable in their effect upon Euro- 
pean knowledge of this section and in stimulating attempts at 
colonization. In 1604 a French expedition under De Monts 
planted a colony upon a little island at the mouth of the St. 
Croix River, then the only settlement of Europeans in all 
America north of the Spaniards in Florida. The colony was 
abandoned a year later, but it was nevertheless the real begin- 
ning of New France. The real beginning of New England was 
in the colony planted at the mouth of the Kennebec in August, 
1607, by George Popham and 120 others sent out from England 
by the Plymouth Company whose head was Sir John Popham, 
Lord Chief Justice of England. 

They buiJt a fort, which they called Fort George, and erected 
a church and a score of rude houses around it. This was the 
first English settlement in New England, but like the French 
colony at the mouth of the St. Croix it was a broken beginning. 
The rigors of a single winter, during which their leader died, 
disheartened the colonists, who were largely adventurers and 
seekers for wealth, and in the fall of 1608 they all returned to 
England. Part of them made the return voyage in a little pin- 
nace or shallop of 30 tons which had been built soon after their 
arrival, the first shipbuilding venture in America and the begin- 
ning of the great industry which later made the Kennebec famed 
around the world. This craft was called the ''Virginia of Saga- 
dahoc," this section being then known as the northern part of 
that vast and vague "Virginia" which Sir Walter Raleigh had 
claimed for England some 20 years earlier, and the lower part

of the Kennebec being- know u as the Sagadahoc at this time atul 
for a century or more later. 

In this same year. 1608. French Jesuits lauded upon Mount 
Desert and a few years later they were joined b\' others frotn 
France, but in 161 3 the colony was wiped out of existence by 
an English expeditioti from \'irgnnia under Samuel Argall. At 
this time and for many years later many English traders and 
fishermen were frequenting the coast of Maine. Their chief 
rendezvous was in that region which includes Pemaquiil and. 
jNIonhegan and the mouths of the Sheepscot. Damariscotta and 
St. Georges rivers. Most of them were mere ai.lventurers, 
coming and going with the seasons, and making no attempts at 
permanent settlement until about 16J5. lit 1030 it is said that 
84 families, besides fishermen, were residing along the coast of 
this region. 

The pennanent settlement at Pemaqtiid, which was later with 
its successive forts to be the scene of so nuich stirring history, 
dates from 162^-26. Sir Ferdinando Gorges received in 1622 
a grant of territory stretching eastward from the Piscataqua 
River, and within a few years .Vgamenticus. now York, Saco. 
Scarboro. Falmouth. Brunswick and Arrowsic were founded. 
Gorges had dreams of a city which should be the seat of great 
power and in 1641 Agamenticus became Gorgeanna. the first 
chartered city in America. In 1652 it was organized as a town 
and named for the English city of York, being the second town 
to be incorporated in what is now ■Maine. The first was Kit- 
tery in 1647. 

The part played by ^Maine in saving the Plymouth colony 
from destruction is a chapter of special interest. It was only 
the corn secured at Pemaquid and the neighboring islands 
which saved the Pilgrims from starvation, and later it was only 
by means of the profits of the fur trade maintained with the 
Maine Indians that Plymouth was able to free itself from the 
burdensome debt which it owed in England. The Plvmouth 



44 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 



traders established several posts along the coast and on the 
lower Kennebec, but the one most important and most perma- 
nent in character was that maintained from 1625 to 1662 at 
Koussinoc, at the head of the tide on the Kennebec where 
Augusta now stands. 

The post stood where Fort Western was built a century later, 
in 1754, and here for a generation the men who came in the 
Mayflower were almost as much at home as in the streets of 
Plymouth. Few of us here in Maine have realized the close 
connection between Plymouth and ancient Koussinoc on the 
Kennebec. There is nothing legendary or uncertain about it, 
but it is a matter of authentic history that Myles Standish, John 
Alden, the Winslows, the Bradfords, the Rowlands, the South- 
worths and others whose names are revered as those of the m.en 
who laid the cornerstone of our civilization, came here to the 
spot where Augusta now stands, not once but continually 
through a third of a century. The site of old Fort Western 
and its immediate vicinity was long trod by the same feet that 
consecrated Plymouth Rock. These Pilgrim Fathers lived in 
peace with the Indians, but left wholly to the French mission- 
aries, who came down through the wilderness from Quebec, the 
work of trying to civilize or Christianize them. When the game 
became scarce the post was abandoned. 

The name of New England was given to this region by John 
Smith in 1614 on his voyage of exploration and trade along the 
coast. The name of Maine was early applied to this part of 
New England, as in the charter granted to Gorges by Charles I 
in 1639 when it is spoken of as "the Province or Countie of 
Mayne." The name, as is now generally accepted, came from 
speaking of it as "the main land" in distinction from the many 
islands along the shore. Massachusetts lost no time in bring- 
ing the Maine settlements under its authority, although the 
confusion in the charters and patents made trouble for many 
years. In 1652 all the towns as far east as Casco were annexed 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 45 

by Massachusetts, and by 1660 all Maine west of the Penobscot 
was claimed and retained in spite of royal orders from Charles 
II. The region east of the Penobscot was then and for many 
years later held by the French, whose claims, indeed, covered 
the territory westward to the Kennebec. 

From 1675 to 1759 a series of Indian wars, six in all, devas- 
tated Maine, checking the tide of immigration, costing many 
hundreds of lives and ending at last, as such a warfare had to 
end, in the practical extermination of the Maine red men. The 
Indians had given a welcome to the early explorers and settlers 
which was wholly friendly, but in the course of a century they 
had suffered many wrongs. Their lands were taken, they were 
cheated in trade, the game was killed off and some of the Indians 
v/ere even kidnapped and sold as slaves in Europe. Their con- 
tact with the English had brought them only degradation and 
injustice. Thus when King Philip's war began in Massachu- 
setts in 1675 it was not long before the Maine Indians were 
drawn into it, though it was with reluctance that the peaceful 
Abenaki s of the Kennebec region joined the other more warlike 
tribes at whose hands they had often suft'ered. At this time it 
is estimated that between 5000 and 6000 people lived along the 
coast of Maine, of whom less than 1000 were east of the Ken- 
nebec. No fewer than 300 English lives were sacrificed in 
Maine and most of the settlements were abandoned and deso- 
lated before peace came in 1678. 

,This first war was wholly between the Indians and the Eng- 
lish settlers. All of the remiaining Indian wars were incidental 
to the long and bloody struggle between the French and English 
for the possession of this part of the continent, a struggle in 
which the Indians were always the active allies of the French 
who had never stolen their land or cheated them in trade and 
who had won them through the zeal of the Jesuit missionaries. 
To follow these wars would be tedious detail. No one of them 
was as bloody as the first war had been, for the settlements were 



46 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

better protected by garrisons of soldiers from Massachusetts 
and the EngHsh had become more wary of surprises and ambus- 
cades. Still the fourth of these wars, usually known as Love- 
well's war, 1722-25, cost the lives of fully 200 English soldiers 
and settlers. 

During the third and fourth wars the English sent numerous 
expeditions against the Jesuit missionary, Sebastian Rale, whose 
headquarters were at Norridgewock and who had carried on 
for over 30 years the work which the pioneer missionary of 
Maine, Gabriel Druillettes, had begun in the Kennebec valley 
in 1646 with the sanction of the English. Beyond doubt Father 
Rale used his great influence to keep the Indians loyal to the 
French, but the English accused him of encouraging uprisings 
and giving countenance to Indian savagery. Four winter expe- 
ditions failed in their main purpose, but in the summer of 1724 
a force of 200 English soldiers succeeded in surprising the 
Norridgewock village. A great part of the Indians were killed 
and the village was completely destroyed. Father Rale was 
shot with the rest and the scalp was torn from his white head 
to be exhibited in triumph in Boston. The power of the Ken- 
nebec Indians was broken and they never recovered from this 
crushing blow. Most of the survivors fled to the eastward or 
northward to Quebec. 

The struggle between England and France continued and 
many of the blows of the battle fell upon Maine. It was a 
Maine man, William Pepperell of Kittery, who led the expe- 
dition in 1745 which captured Louisburg on Cape Breton, the 
chief stronghold of the French in America next to Quebec. 
Many hundred Maine soldiers and sailors were with this expe- 
dition, and also with the expedition of 1755 which drove the 
French from Acadia and that of 1758 which captured Louisburg 
a second time. A force of 400 French and Indians attacked the 
forts at St. George and Friendship in 1758, but failed to capture 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 47 

them, and this was the last blow struck against the English by 
the Indians of IMaine. 

In 1754, as outposts to guard the disputed border, the English 
built three strong forts along the Kennebec, Fort Shirley to 
replace Fort Richmond which had been built in 1718, Fort 
Western on the site of the old Plymouth trading post at Kous- 
sinoc and Fort Halifax at Teconnet or Winslow. These were 
never attacked and after a few years they were dismantled and 
abandoned, while settlements sprang up around them. The 
capture of Quebec in 1758 put an end to the long warfare, and 
with the welcome arrival of peace the tide of immigration from 
Massachusetts and Great Britain poured along the coast of 
Maine and up the river valleys. 

Maine's part in the war for independence is a splendid chap- 
ter in its histor\^ When the news came from Lexington and 
Concord in April, 1775, a company was formed at York and at 
once hurried to Boston. A Maine regiment, raised by Col. 
Scammon of Saco, participated in the battle of Bunker Hill. 
The first naval battle of the war was the capture in May, 1775, 
of the armed British sloop Margaretta by the intrepid patriots 
of Machias who refused to obey the British command that they 
take down the village Liberty pole. In the late fall of 1775 
occurred the expedition of Arnold with iioo troops up the Ken- 
nebec and through the wilderness in the attempt to capture 
Quebec and win Canada to the side of the colonies. In October 
of the same year Portland, then a town of 2000 people, was 
bombarded and burned by a British fleet of four vessels under 
Capt. Mowatt. The British held the Penobscot through the 
war, with their headquarters at Castine, and eastern Maine was 
the scene of several important expeditions and engagements. 
But the patriots of Machias and vicinity remained unsubdued, 
and in 1783 the treaty of peace recognized the St. Croix, instead 
of the Penobscot, as the eastern boundary of Maine. It has 
been estimated that Maine contributed over 7000 soldiers to the 



48 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

American army during the war, and of this number about iioo 
shared with Washington the hardships of that memorable 
winter at Valley Forge. 

Hardly had peace been declared in 1783 before the movement 
began for the separation of Maine from Massachusetts, a move- 
ment which was not crowned with success until 1820, 37 years 
later. It was at first a minority movement, but the arguments 
for separation became stronger as Maine grew in population 
and desired more the dignity and privileges of separate state- 
hood. Then there was a political reason, as Massachusetts was 
strongly Federalist while Maine was in sympathy with the oppo- 
site party. The first vote of the people of Maine on the subject 
was taken in 1792 when 2,084 votes were cast in favor of sepa- 
ration and 2,438 against it. It is worthy of note, however, that 
in 83 of the 89 towns which made returns there was a majority 
in favor of separation. The six towns opposing separation were 
all in York county, and their overwhelming majority against it 
was large enough to more than overcome the majorities of the 
83 towns favoring separation. 

There were numerous petitions sent to the General Court 
during the following dozen years and several conventions were 
held, but the next vote was not taken until 1807 when 3,370 
votes were cast for separation and 9,404 against. Plainly the 
movement was losing ground, but the War of 181 2 greatly 
strengthened it and when the third vote was taken in 18 16 there 
were 10,584 votes for separation and 6,491 against it. In the 
next year another vote resulted 11,969 for separation and 10,347 
against it. The fifth and final vote in 181 9 resulted 17,091 for 
and 7' 1 32 opposed. Every town in Maine gave a majority for 
separation. In the meantime there had been no end of lively 
discussion in both Maine and Massachusetts and many debates 
in the General Court. The people of Massachusetts were very 
unwilling at first to allow the separation, but finally left the 
decision wholly with Maine. There was still the struggle in 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 49 

Congress, but under a compromise Maine was admitted as a 
free state to offset the admission of Missouri, and on March 15, 
1820, the separation from Massachusetts became complete. 

A constitutional convention was at once held in Portland and 
only 796 votes were cast in the new State against the constitution 
there drawn up. William King of Bath became the first Gov- 
ernor, receiving 21,083 votes of the 22,014 cast. The tempo- 
rary seat of government was Portland and in 1827 Augusta was 
made the permanent capital, other places which presented claims 
for the honor being Belfast, Wiscasset, Brunswick and Hallo- 
well. When Maine became a State in 1820 its population was 
298,335 and it contained nine counties and 236 towns. The 
population in 1790 was 96,540; in 1800 it was 151,719, and in 
1810 it was 228,705. At each census since Maine's admission 
as a State its census has been as follows : 1830, 399,455 ; 1840, 
501,793; 1850, 583,169; i860, 628,279; 1870, 626,915; 1880, 
648,936; 1890, 661,086; 1900, 694,466. In 1900 Maine ranked 
30th among the States of the Union in population. 

In the second war with Great Britain Maine bore an important 
part. A Maine man. Gen. Henry Dearborn of Gardiner, was at 
first the commander-in-chief of the national army, and Maine's 
quota of the troops called for was 2,500 men. The famous naval 
battle in which the American brig Enterprise captured the Brit- 
ish brig Boxer, occurred Sept. 5, 1813, off the mouth of the 
Kennebec. The British early invaded eastern Maine, capturing 
Eastport, Castine, Belfast, Machias, Frankfort, Hampden, Ban- 
gor and other towns. The few companies of militia could offer 
little resistance to the thousands of British regulars. At Bangor 
the enemy burned 14 vessels, carried others away and plun- 
dered much public and private property. Although the treaty 
of peace was signed Dec. 24, 1814, the British did not evacuate 
Castine until the following April. The "cold year" of 1816 
was almost as much of a blow to Maine as the war had been. 
There was snow in every month, the croDS were complete fail- 



50 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

ures and it is estimated that about 15,000 people moved out of 
the State, most of them going westward to Ohio. 

After Maine's admission to the Union in 1820 prosperity 
reigned and the State made substantial progress. The first 
event of general historic interest was the dispute over the north- 
eastern boundary, commonly called the "Aroostook War" or 
"Madawaska War." The line had long been in dispute and 
was the cause of frequent quarrels among the settlers and lum- 
bermen of the St. John and St. Croix region. The officials sent 
to the border by the authorities of Maine and New Brunswick 
in 1839 came into collision. The militia was called out and 
there was a mustering of forces by both sides, but through the 
intercession of Gen. Scott, the head of the United States army, 
who came to Augusta for the purpose, it was decided to refer 
the question to arbitration, and thus the threatened bloodshed 
was averted. By the Ashburton treaty of 1842, Daniel Webster 
being the American commissioner, the line was fixed greatly to 
the advantage of Maine, and the State received $200,000 as 
reimbursement for the expenses incurred in defending the integ- 
rity of American territory. After the signing of this treaty in 
1842 the small body of United States troops which had been 
kept at Houlton since 1826 was withdrawn and the post aban- 
doned. 

After years of temperance agitation Maine led the way in 
legislation on this subject. In 185 1 Governor Hubbard signed 
the famous "Maine Law" which had been drawn by Mayor Neal 
Dow of Portland and passed by the Legislature through his 
efforts. This was the first prohibition law enacted by any state, 
and after being made more stringent in later years its principle 
was embodied in the fifth amendment to the constitution which 
was adopted in 1884. In recent years there have been vigorous 
assaults upon Maine's prohibition policy and attempts to have 
the question of constitutional prohibition resubmitted to the 
people, but without success. 



MAINE REFERENCE Mx\NUAL. 51 

No state in the Union had a more glorious record in the Civil 
War than Maine. From Bull Run, where one-fourth of the 
Federal troops were volunteers from ]\Iaine, to Appomattox, 
where Gen. Chamberlain of Maine received the sword of Lee 
in surrender, the sons of Maine were always at the front and 
did their part. No state in proportion to its population sent 
more men to the defense of the Union. Over 70,000 Maine 
men enlisted under the old flag. There were over 30 full regi- 
ments of infantry, two of cavalry, one double regiment of heavy 
artillery, several batteries and hundreds of men who went into 
the navy, and when the regiments after long service were deci- 
mated by battle and disease they were recruited again and again. 
No regiments had heavier losses in battle than some of those 
from Maine. Maine regiments were the first to carry back the 
flag to South Carolina and Texas. No Maine regiment lost its 
colors in dishonor, or brought them back with any other stain 
upon them than the life blood of their defenders. The State 
has no more precious possession than those returned Maine 
battleflags which are treasured at the State House in Augusta. 

The financial burden which the war imposed upon Maine is 
indicated by the growth of the bonded debt of the State from 
$700,000 in i860 to over $6,100,000 in 1866, while in every town 
and cit}^ the debt burden was similarly increased. Moreover, 
there was such a drain upon the State that its population act- 
ually decreased in the decade from i860 to 1870, a misfortune 
which overtook no other Northern state except New Hampshire. 
But no figures of troops furnished or of losses in battle, no 
statistics of increasing debt or decreasing population can meas- 
ure what those four years of war meant to the patriotic people 
of Maine — the sorrow, the sacrifice and the suffering, the deso- 
lated homes and the broken lives. 

As to the political history of Maine it may be said briefly that 
in the early years the State was usually Democratic, and only 
once, in 1840, was its electoral vote cast for the Whig presi- 



52 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

dential candidate. Since the formation of the RepubHcan party 
in 1856, a movement in which Maine took a leading part, the 
State has been emphatically Republican at every presidential 
election, and also at every gubernatorial election except those of 
1878 and 1880 when a fusion of the Democrats and the Green- 
back party succeeded in electing their candidate for Governor. 
The Governor chosen in 1878 was Alonzo Garcelon of Lewis- 
ton, and in 1879, when another election was held, Governor 
Garcelon, desirous of gaining the Legislature for his party, 
seized every opportunity afforded by the irregular way in which 
the election returns were then handled to refuse certificates to 
Republican candidates and seat Democrats in their place. In 
this way a Democratic majority was secured and the Legislature 
was organized. The Republicans, gaining possession of the 
State House, organized a rival body, and proceeded to elect 
Daniel F. Davis as Governor since no candidate had received a 
majority at the polls. Feeling was intense throughout the State 
and Augusta became an armed camp. Peace was preserved by 
the militia until a decision of the Supreme Court established the 
legality of the Republican Legislature. This affair of the 
"State Steal" or "Count Out," as it is referred to, was a crisis 
in the history of Maine and it is little less than a miracle that 
bloodshed was averted. In 1880 the system of annual elections 
was given up and the present system of biennial elections 
adopted. 

In the years that have passed since the Civil War Maine has 
enjoyed a progress that has been steady and substantial. The 
gain in population has not been great, only about 100,000 in 40 
years, for this State, in common with the others of New Eng- 
land, has suffered from a declining birthrate among the old 
stock and has seen for many years a continuous procession of 
its sons and daughters departing for the great cities and for all 
sections of the West. Factors in the increase of population 
have been the Swedish immigration to Aroostook and the influx

of French Canadians to the manufacturing centers. The for- 
mer began in 1870, through the efforts of Hon. W. W. Thomas, 
Jr., of Portland, and the hardy, industrious and sober Scandi- 
navians, with their descendants, have been an important factor 
in the development of the great Aroostook region. The earliest 
European element, not English, to be introduced was the 
German colony brought in by Samuel Waldo who, in 1739, 
founded the town of Waldoboro. The Irish began to come in 
as laborers a century later with the beginnings of railroad con- 
struction. The Canadian immigrants have confined themselves 
largely to the cotton manufacturing centers of Lewiston, Bidde- 
ford, Augusta and Waterville. In this connection it is of inter- 
est to note that of the 15,878 births in Maine in 1907, 9,452 were 
the children of American parents and 3,265 the children of for- 
eig-born parents, while in 2,891 cases one of the parents was 
foreign-born. In the same year there were 11,427 deaths in 
the State, 6,498 marriages and 787 divorces. 

The material prosperity of Maine is indicated by the State 
valuation for 1907 which was given by the State assessors as 
$354,516,848. This was a gain of $72,640,047 in the preceding 
decade. Of the valuation in 1907 about 45 per cent was in the 
20 cities of the State. In 1907 the 52 savings banks of Maine 
held deposits of $85,382,447, representing the savings of 225,346 
depositors. This takes no account of the many millions depos- 
ited in the savings departments of the trust companies and 
national banks. It is an eloquent evidence of the thrift and 
industry of our Maine people and is a showing which few states 
can approach. Ten years earlier the 52 savings banks had 
deposits of $57,476,895 in the names of 163,115 depositors. 
The bonded debt of the State, which was $6,100,000 at the close 
of the Civil War, has been reduced to $334,000 in 1908 and will 
soon be wholly wiped out. Of the 521 municipalities of the 
State — 20 cities, 428 towns and 73 plantations — 280 are in 1908

without a dollar of municipal debt and a large share of the 
others are nearly free from debt. 

The shipbuilding industry which was so important on our 
coast for generations, and in which Maine long held first place 
among the states, has declined in recent years, and the cutting 
of ice for export is no longer a thriving business. Along other 
industrial lines, however, there has been increasing prosperity. 
The development of the pulp and paper business has been 
followed by more extensive operations in the Maine woods. 
Although forests still cover about three- fourths of the area of 
Maine, the primeval growth of pine for which the State was 
famed has long since disappeared. It is the vast spruce tracts 
that supply the great pulp mills and the many saw mills on the 
rivers of the State. There are also extensive manufactures in 
hardwood. Agriculture is on a far better basis than in earlier 
years, and much more attention is paid to dairying, orcharding 
and potato raising. Over 95 per cent of Maine's 60,000 farms 
are owned by the men who till them. Maine ranks second 
among the states in granite production and high in its general 
mineral resources. In its fisheries it has more persons employed 
than any other New England state, nearly 20,000 according to 
the latest figures. Cotton mills are the leading industries in 
several cities on the Saco, Androscoggin and Kennebec, and 
woolen mills, lumber mills, shoe factories and general manu- 
facturing establishments prosper in all parts of the State, though 
only a very small part of the water power is yet utilized. The 
steam railroads of the State, which began in 1836 with the little 
road from Bangor to Old Town, have in 1908 a total of 2,145 
miles and there are also 384 miles of electric road. 

The development of Maine's summer resort business within 
the past generation and the increasing appreciation of the value 
of its fish and game resources have been an important factor 
in the prosperity of the State. Maine, with its unrivaled summer 
climate, its 3,000 miles of magnificent coast line, its 1,600 beau- 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 55 

tiful lakes, its 5,000 rivers and streams, its vast and unbroken 
forests, its rugged mountains and its many picturesque villages 
among the hills and ponds, has won the name of "the nation's 
summer playground," and thousands upon thousands of vaca- 
tionists and tourists, hunters ^d fishermen, seekers for rest and 
lovers of Nature at her best are thronging within our borders 
each summer, adding many millions of dollars yearly to the rev- 
enues of our people. There are sum.mer colonies all along the 
coast and at a hundred inland points, and the names of scores 
of Maine's summer resorts are familiar throughout the land. 
This annual invasion of summer visitors is solving in large 
measure the "abandoned farm" problem of a few years ago. 

From the earliest colonial times the cause of education has 
been dear to the hearts of the people of Maine. When the State 
was admitted in 1820 there were 24 incorporated academies 
within its borders and others were established later. Many of 
these, the oldest and strongest, survive, though the free high 
school law, which dates from 1873, proved a death blow to a 
large part of the academies. One of the first laws of the new 
State was that requiring every town to raise not less than 40 
cents annually per inhabitant for school purposes. The State 
has long had a compulsory attendance law covering the ages 
from 7 to 15, and few states have a lower rate of illiteracy. 
The old district plan of school supervision has given way to 
town management and to management by two or more towns 
uniting for the purpose. In 1907 the whole number of those 
of school age in the State, 5 years to 21, was 209,950; the num- 
ber of different scholars registered in the public schools during 
the year was 131,671. There were 3,989 public schoolhouses 
in the State and the estimated value of the school property was 
$6,151,746. The amount expended on the public schools of the 
State in 1907 was $2,040,285. There were 4,698 female teach- 
ers and 460 male teachers employed. The State maintains 
Normal schools at Farmington, Castine, Gorham and Presque 



56 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

Isle and there are Normal departments at several seminaries and 
institutes. The institutions of higher education are Bowdoin 
College at Brunswick, dating from 1794; Colby College, which 
was established as Waterville College in 1820; Bates College 
at Lewiston, established in 1863, 'and the University of Maine 
at Orono which has developed from the Maine State College 
of Agriculture and the Alechanic Arts which was established 
in 1868. There are also the Bangor Theological Seminary at 
Bangor, dating from 1814, and St. Mary's College at Van 
Buren, established in 1887. 

But the greatest glory of Maine is not in its civil history, its 
military record, its political institutions, its industrial develop- 
ment, its educational progress, its material prosperity, its wealth 
of resources or its natural attractions. These things are themes 
for chapters in the story of our State, and the knowledge of 
them makes us love it more, but the proudest boast of Maine is 
the sons it has given to the world. These are the real test of a 
state's greatness, and measured by such a test the State of 
Maine has justified its motto of "Dirigo." Let us mention 
briefly a few of the great names that Maine can claim, names 
which the world knows and which the passing years will not 
dim. 

To statesmanship and the great realm of public affairs Maine 
has given Sir William Phipps, George Evans, Sargent Prentiss, 
Jonathan Cilley, William Pitt Fessenden, John A. Andrew, 
Hannibal Hamlin, Lot M. Morrill, the Washburn brothers, 
Hugh McCullogh, James G. Blaine, Nathan Clifford, Luther 
Severance, Thomas B. Reed, Nelson Dingley, Jr., Melville Wes- 
ton Fuller, William P. Frye, Eugene Hale, Charles E. Littlefield, 
John D. Long, Alfred E. Buck, United States minister to Japan, 
W. W. Thomas, Jr., long our minister to Sweden, Frank S. 
Black, governor of New York, DeAlva S. Alexander, the senior 
in service of the present New York congressional delegation. 
Senators Felch of Michigan, Grover of Oregon, Washburn of 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 57 

Minnesota, Gibson of Montana and Perkins of California, Gov- 
ernor Dole of Hawaii, Governor Pingree of Michigan, and 
scores of others who have attained eminence in public office in 
this and in many other states as governors, as members of Con- 
gress, as judges and in various offices of distinction. No other 
state ever produced such a family as the Washburn family of 
Livermore. This one family gave to the public service one 
United States senator, four members of Congress from four 
different states, two foreign ministers, two governors of two 
different states, one major general in the army and one captain 
in the navy. 

Among those who have gained fame in the stern work of war 
Maine claims such leaders as Sir William Pepperell, Gen. Henry 
Knox, Gen. Henry Dearborn, Commodore Edward Preble, Gen. 
Oliver Otis Howard, Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain, Gen. Berry, 
Gen. Selden Connor and Gen. Thomas W. Hyde. 

To literature Maine has given Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 
Nathaniel P. Willis, Seba Smith, the Abbott family, Elijah 
Kellogg, Sarah Orne Jewett, Rebecca Sophia Clark, Edward 
Stanwood, Arlo Bates, Charles A. Stephens, Martha Baker 
Dunn, Laura E. Richards, Edwin Arlington Robinson, Holman 
F, Day and a host of others of lesser fame, but whose works 
have strength and beauty and the elements of permanency. To 
music and art Maine has given Annie Louise Cary, Emma 
Eames, Madame Nordica, Franklin Simmons, the sculptor, 
Alfred Stone, the architect, and Eastman Johnson, the painter; 
to the stage, Sol Smith Russell, Richard Golden, Dustin Farn- 
ham and Maxine Elliott. Among Maine men whose scientific 
achievements the world has honored may be mentioned Parker 
Cleveland, Fordyce Barker, Sir Hiram Maxim and Robert E. 
Peary. 

To educational work Maine has given such men as Nathan 
Lord, for 35 years president of Dartmouth, President Harris of 
Amherst, President Mosher of Hillsdale College, Chancellor 



58 MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 

Day of Syracuse University, Albert K. Smiley, the founder and 
patron saint of the Mohonk Conference, Mary J. Garland, the 
pioneer in kindergarten work in America, and many great teach- 
ers of far-reaching influence whose names have long been hon- 
ored and beloved at our own Maine colleges. In the great 
world of business affairs we find such sons of Maine as William 
Deering of Chicago, the harvester king ; Melville E. Ingalls of 
Cincinnati, the Western railroad magnate ; Jacob L. Greene, 
president for 30 years of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance 
Company ; John F. Dryden of New Jersey, the builder and head 
of the great Metropolitan Insurance Company; Thomas H. 
Hubbard of New York, banker, railroad man and philan- 
thropist ; Frank H. Munsey, who has revolutionized the maga- 
zine business ; Henry V. Poor, the country's leading railroad 
statistician ; Henry W. Poor, railroad president and banker ; 
Charles W. Morse of New York, organizer of ice trust and 
steamboat trust ; Francis H. Clergue, organizer of stupendous 
industrial and transportation enterprises in western Canada ; 
Charles C. Stickney of St. Paul, railroad president ; E. C. Allen, 
founder of Augusta's publishing industries ; the Ricker brothers 
of Poland Spring, the greatest summer hotel men in the world ; 
John F. Stevens, for a time at the head of the Panama canal 
commission ; Eben Jordan, the great Boston merchant ; and 
Edwin Ginn and Dana Estes, the publishers. 

To journalism Maine has given such names as Crosby S. 
Noyes of the Washington Star, Edwin B. Haskell of the Boston 
Herald, Edward P. Mitchell of the New York Sun, and Morrill 
Goddard of the New York Journal ; to theology such names as 
Samuel Harris, Henry B. Smith, Roswell Dwight Hitchcock, 
Newman Smyth, Egbert C. Smyth, John S. Sewallj Charles 
Carroll Everett, Edwin Pond Parker, Bishop Spaulding of Colo- 
rado, Charles Fletcher Dole, Minot J. Savage and the Abbotts ; 
to the work of spreading Christianity in dark and distant lands 
such great missionaries as Cyrus Hamlin, George Dana Board- 



MAINE REFERENCE MANUAL. 59 

man, Americus Fuller, Daniel Dole and James Liddell Phillips. 
Maine has given to the good cause of making the old world 
laugh such names as Artemus Ward and Bill Nye. In the work 
of temperance legislation no name is better known than that of 
the pioneer in this cause., Neal Dow of Maine. In the great 
organization of women banded together "for God and home and 
every land," no name is higher than that of Lillian M. N. Ste- 
vens, long its national leader. In Masonry, the greatest of all 
secret orders, no American name is more revered than that of 
Josiah H. Drummond. Among all the great anti-slavery agita- 
tors in the years before the war none worked with more impas- 
sioned zeal than Elijah and Owen Love joy, the former dying a 
martyr's death at the hands of a mob in Illinois. 

The list is incomplete enough, but it indicates something of 
the part that Maine has played in American history as a Mother 
of Men. The contemplation of such a roll of honor brings to 
our minds a realization of the true glory whose luster sheds its 
deathless radiance upon the name of Maine. The past of our 
State is secure, and who can doubt its future?

Agrictilttira.1 Statistics. 



(From the United States Census Report.) 

Maine has a total land area of 29,895 square miles, of which 
9,844 square miles, or 32.9%, are included in farms. The sur- 
face consists of two great slopes, the northern and the southern. 
The northern slope, comprising about one-third of the total area, 
is drained by the St. John river and its tributaries, the southern 
slope by numerous streams which flow into the Atlantic. The 
broad, flat divide which separates the two slopes serves as a 
natural reservoir, most of the rivers of the State having their 
sources in the large lakes of this region. Some of the lakes 
have outlets on both sides of the watershed. 

The surface of a large part of the State is rugged and broken. 
The soil of the river valleys is very productive, but in the moun- 
tainous regions and along the sea coast it is for the most part 
sterile. The Aroostook Valley, which comprises the largest area 
of fertile farming land in New England, has a deep, porous, 
yellow loam, especially adapted to the growing of fruits and 
vegetables. This section has developed remarkably during the 
last decade. 

NUMBER AND SIZE OF FARMS IN THE STATE. 

The following table gives, by decades since 1850, the number 
of farms, the total and average acreage, and the per cent, of 
farm land improved.

Mistofty of Benton 



EARLY SETTLEMENT 

Sometime about 1775 George Fitzgerald and David 
Gray came from Ireland, and settled near each other, about 
a mile north of what is now Benton Station. Several years 
later one Gibson settled about two miles north of the Sta- 
tion, on the present river road. Previous to 1777 Stephen 
Goodwin from Bowdoiuham located at Goodwin's Corner. 
About 1783 Gershom Flagg from Lancaster, Mass., settled 
on the west bank of the Sebasticook, and received from the 
Plymouth Company the grant of a strip of land, fifteen 
miles long by half a mile wide, for his services in the con- 
struction of Fort Halifax. It is further related that he 
gave a portion of this land to his brother-in-law, Hon. Jo- 
seph North of Augusta, who had surveyed for him. About 
1779 Job Roundy removed from Ljnn, Mass., to land north 
of what is now Benton Village, and began clearing the farm 
later occupied in part by his aged son, William, who was 
born on the place in ISOG. About 1790, about a mile south 
of East Benton, John Denico, Simon Brown and Mr. Ander- 
son took up land on the present lower Albion road, and 
previous to 1800 Solomon Peck, a revolutionary pensioner, 



162 BENTON 

came from Vermont and began farming iu a primitive way, 
on the west bank of the Sebasticook below Benton Falls. 
These were among the earliest settlers of whom any record 
can be obtained; but from the year 1800 down the list grows 
larger. A curious document still extant gives "An Inven- 
tory of the Real & Personal Estate of the Inhabitants and 
non-resident Proprietors of the Town of Clinton, taken by 
the Assessors of said Town, May 1st, 1800." According to 
this paper thirty-nine persons (many of whose names will 
be hereafter mentioned) were assessed, the total tax on their 
real estate being $511. 9G and on their personal estate 
$354.83. 

Among the settlers in Benton at the beginning of the 
present century were Joseph and James North, the latter 
the father of the historian, Hon. James W. The brothers 
were engaged in trade and lumbering, but James dying, 
February 10, 1812, Joseph removed to Augusta. In 1812, 
Dr. Whiting Robinson came from Albion and bought the 
David Reed farm of Timothy, son of Ebenezer Heald. In 
181G he bought of William Fellow the farm north of that 
then occupied by Dominicus Getchell, where he died about 
1853. Getchell conveyed his farm, iu February, 1822, to 
John Reed. Next north of this farm lived Doctor Bowman, 
who died previous to 181 G. Dr. Stephen Thayer came from 
Fairfield prior to 183G and was located for a year or two at 
what is now Benton village. The John 0. Fowler farm, on 
the east side of the Sebasticook, was first settled by one 
Barnes, nearly a century ago. Just north of this farm 
Samuel Fowler, father of John 0., settled early in the cen- 



HISTORICAL 163 

tury. Across the river from him lived "Squire" Stinchfield, 
over ninety years ap;o. His son, Captain John H., and Cap- 
tain Trial Hall, occupied farms in this vicinity, and in Cap- 
tains Hall's barn the town of old Clinton held its meeting 
for a number of years.. 

On the road from Sebasticook river to Clinton Town 
House were two early farmers— Charles Ames and Isaac 
Holt. Colonel Reed was an old settler. Previous to 1820 
Isaac Spencer built the house called "The Star and Eagle" 
(from a curious device which he placed over the front door). 
It stands about a mile above the Falls, on the east side of 
the river, and was later owned by Asher H. Barton, Sumner 
Hodgkins and Mrs. Loudon Brown. 

In April, 1820, the Reed Spencer farm was deeded to 
Hobart Richardson. In the same year Henry Sleeper and 
Samuel Hudson bought of Peter Grant one undivided half 
of the lot afterward known as the Ford and Hudson lot. In 
1824 Amos Barton deeded the Joseph IJurd farm to Jonah 
Crosby. About 1830 Thomas J. Hinds bought the mile 
square, and in June, 1833, sold it to Steward Hunt; and in 
October, 1831, Johnson and Samuel Lunt convej'ed to the 
Stiuchfields, house lots back of the brick store in Benton 
Village. Still other old settlers in this neighborhood were 
Abram Roundy, brother of Job, who lived on the east side 
of the Sebasticook, and died between 1850 and 1860; Na- 
thaniel Brown, who lived on the Albion road and died in 
the fifties; and Moody Brown, who occupied a farm next east 
o1 Nathaniel. 



lU BENTON 

EAST BENTON 

At East Benton the number of early settlers included 
the following: Andrew Spaulding, 1823, who took up a 
farm near Roswell Paul's land; Samuel Spauldino- who came 
in 1831 and purchased about all the land formerly held by 
Denico, Brown and Anderson; Capt. Andrew Kichardson 
about this time settled about half a mile west of the Wil- 
liam Paul farm, which place he bought of the proprietors 
through Reuel Williams of Augusta; John Spaulding, near 
Roswell Paul's land; Noah Paul, who came from Hallowell 
about 1830 and settled on the lower Albion road; Josiah 
Holliagsworth and Solomon Hinds, who came some time 
between 1830 and 1840 and settled on a part of the Denico, 
Brown and Anderson tract. 

brown's corner 

At Brown's Corner, now generally known as Benton 
Station, an early comer was Dr. Ezekiel Brown, a former 
surgeon in the Continental Army. His house sat at the 
corner of the road leading to the bridge. Isaiah Brown 
also lived here about 1815. 

About two miles north of this, on the river road, lived 
Samuel Gibson. About 1800 Timothy Hudson erected a 
house, as did also James Gray.

INCORPORATION 



The first entry in the records of the town of Benton is 
"an act to divide the town of Clinton, and to incorporate 
the town of Sebasticook." The act received the Governor's 
approval on March 16, 1842. Eight years after, on March 
4, the town voted to instruct the selectmen to report a new 



HISTORICAL 167 

name for the town. They settled upon Benton, in honor of 
Thomas Hart Benton. The name was approved by the Lrg- 
islature, and since 1850 the town has ably supported its 
honorable title. 

In 1800 the Kennebec river road was laid out; in 1835 
the Norcross road at East Benton was accepted, and about 
1855 the Clinton road from East Benton was put through. 
The Unity road was laid out in 1810. The road from Hans- 
com's Mills to Albion, on the north side of Fifteen-mile 
stream, was laid out between 1850 and 1860; that from 
Benton Falls to Albion, called the lower road, was laid out 
about 1820-3; the Harris road, from Albion lower road to 
WineloW', was laid out in 1867; the road from the old Asher 
Hinds house, on the Sebasticook river road, to the old 
Smiley house in Winslow, was laid out previous to 1830; 
the road from Unity road to Clinton line, near John Rich- 
ardson's house, was laid out in 1852; and the road from the 
Kennebec river road to the east end of Fairfield bridge was 
laid out in 1847. The covered bridge between Benton and 
Fairfield was built in 1848. It was made free in 1873. 
Bunker's island, between the two towns, was set off from 
Benton to Fairfield several years ago. Previous to the 
building of the bridge Jacob Ames kept a ferry for teams 
and foot passengers, about half a mile north of Benton 
station. The railroad bridge, that formerly crossed the 
river from Fairfield to Benton above the covered bridge, 
was built in 1858-9, and burned in 1873. The bridge at 
Benton Falls was built in the fall of 1869. The so-called 
artificial bridge at Benton village was built in 1887. At the 



168 BENTON 

same spot, about twenty years ago, stood a covered bridge, 
which was carried away by a freshet about 1871. A short 
distance above this bridge stood another, — built in 1850, 
but was carried away prior to the building of the village 
bridge. A toll bridge was built just below Benton Falls pre- 
vious to 1800. It was carried away several times, but the 
last being about 1871, after which it was never rebuilt. The 
town house (formerly Israel Herrin's store), stands in Ben- 
ton village just south of the brick store, on the opposite 
side of the road. It was purchased by the town for its pres- 
ent purpose Nov. 6, 1860. Previous to this, town meetings 
were held in No. 5 schoolhouse. at the Falls. 



INDUSTRIAL ACCOUNT 

1800 — Capt. Andrew Richardson built a saw mill on theeast 
side of the Sebasticook at Benton Village. Ten years 
prior two saw mills were erected by Job Lacy and Abram 
Roundy and others back of the J. O. Fowler farm. 

1810— Jeremiah Hunt engaged in the tanning business and 
for several years after, 

1830— Thomas J. Hinds built a saw mill about two miles 
from the mouth of Fifteen-mile stream. He sold in 1835 
to Steward Hunt who added a shingle mill. This same 
year VVm. Dewey, Harlow Spaulding, Wm. L. Wheeler, 
Geo. Perkins and Jno. Mulliken bought for |32,000 all 
the mills on the Sebasticook and also three farms. In 
1852 they sold the last of the property. 



HISTORICAL 169 

1820 to 1830— Between these years Isaac Spencer, Sr., and 
Isaac Jr., owned two saw mills ab Benton; Capt. J. H. 
Stinchfield, a dye and cardinj;- mill; and Martin Bisbee, a 
tannery. Afterwards Gershom Flao^p; built and operated 
a grist mill at the Falls. 

1810— Jonah and Otis Crosby built a saw and grist mill in 
the south eastern part of the town. Previous to this 
date Nelson, Jesse and Thos. Norcross built shingle mills 
on the Fifteen-Mile Stream, selling later to Jos. Eaton 
and he to David Hanscom who installed a gang of saws 
and a planer. Alter being burned and rebuilt the mills 
were finally burned and never rebuilt. About this time 
Jos. Hurd and Amos Foss built a mill on the stream 
below Crosby's. 

1854— Hiram Pishon and Daniel Ayer built a tannery on 
Fifteen-Mile stream; about ten years later Crosby and 
Walker built a brush block and handle factory at the 
Falls, Heath and Crosby were also engaged in the man- 
ufacture of wooden shoe soles from 1879 to 1882. 

1872 — A potato planter factor}- was started in the John 
Palmer carriage shop by J. L, True, H, L. Crosby, John 
B. and A. G. Clifford. The business was sold a few years 
later to Benjamin & Allen of Oakland. 

Benton's principle industry is the box board mill at the 
Falls, controlled by the United Box Board and Paper Co. 
At this mill formerly a grist mill, was begun the first pulp 
grinding in the state, making it the pioneer of that great 
industry throughout the state of Maine. Joseph Given of 
Brunswick converted the old grist mill into a two grinder 



170 BENTON 

pulp mill and organized the Kennebec Fiber Co. 

Later the Somerset & Kennebec Co. was organized, and 
ia 1899 the electric railroad running between Benton Falls 
and Fairfield was built for carrying the supplies and product 
of the mill and to accommodate the public. The road is 
operated by the same company as the mill but under a sepa- 
rate management. Since 1902 the present management has 
runthe mill. About 100 men are employed when runningon 
hill time, receiving from |4000 to fSOOO in wages monthly. 
About 25 tons of box boards are produced daily. The 
United Box Board and Paper Co. controls the Sebasticook 
water supply from its sources at Newport and Moose Pond. 

John E. Brown's stone cutting and monumental works 
at Benton is an important industry.

ECCLESIASTICAL 



CONGREGATIONALIST 



Early in the century there was no church building in 
Benton, services being occasionally held in No. 5 school- 
house by two old clergymen known as "Parson" Adams and 
"Parson" Lovejoy. The only church edifice for many years 
in town built previous to 1828 was on the east side of the 



172 BENTON 

Sebasticook, on the Winslow and Clinton road, overlooking 
the Falls. Though always belonging to the Congregation- 
alists, the structure was used by them in common with the 
Baptists, Universalists and Methodists since there-organiza- 
tion of the church on July 16, 1858. The re-organization 
alluded to was necessitated by the loss of the old records? 
previous to 1858. Under the original organization there 
was no settled pastor for a number of years; then Rev. Nel- 
son Bishop was installed, sometime previous to 1845. His 
successors have been: Reverends George Tewksbury, 1852- 
53; James M. Palmer, 1853-55; Benjamin P. Dodge, 1856" 
58; F. P. Smith, 1858; Henry M. Vail, 1859-60; F. P. Smith, 
1860; S. H. Smith, 1860-67; Henry Marden, 1867; Frank G. 
Clark, 1868; William S. Brown, 1809-70; Benjamin A.Robie, 
1871; F. I. Bailey, 1872; Charles D. Crane, 1873; John Dins- 
more, 1873-74; Charles D. Crane, 1875-76; John Dinsmore, 
1876-78; James Heath, July to October, 1878; Alexander 
Wiswall, 1878-81; G. N. Jones, 1881-82; John Dinsmore and 
A. N. Small, 1883; T. P. Williams, 1883-92. (We have not 
obtained the list from this time). 

METHODIST CHURCH 

In 1892 the Methodist chapel at Benton was erected by 
the Methodist society and is considered part of the Clinton 
charge. The chapel is located on the west side of the Sebas- 
ticook river and is a very convenient and pretty church 
home. For a list of pastors see under Clinton M. E. church. 

FRIENDS CHURCH 

At East Benton is located the new Friends church build- 



HISTORICAL 173 

ing erected in 1900. It was dedicated on October lOtb, of 
that year. The credit for building the church belongs to 
Rev. Marcus Thomas in company with the thoroughly loyal 
members of tne Society and community. 

At the time of the dedication of the church Rev. Everlon 
Prescott was the pastor. 

Rev. Wm, Fletcher of Waterville is pastor of the Falls 
Baptist church. 



EDUCATIONAL NOTES 

There were in Benton nine school districts at the time of 
incorporation, and since then another district has been 
added. Each contains a comfortable and well appointed 
schoolhouse, uniform text books are used, and the entire 
school property is valued about $3,500. Usually a high 
school was maintained in No. 5 schoolhouse at the Falls; 
but the proximity of Waterville offered advantages in higher 
education with which it was useless for Benton to compete. 
No. 5 schoolhouse stands on the site of old Clinton Acad- 
emy. This latter building was begun about 1830, by acora- 
pany of citizens, who proposed making of it a female college. 
The company, however, were unable to complete the struc- 
ture, and accordingly turned it over to the Methodist soci- 
ety, which finished it and threw open its doors to scholars of 
both sexes. About 1858 the Methodist society deeded the 
academy to Hobart Richardson, who deeded it to Daniel H. 



174 BENTON 

Brown; and in July, 1859, Brown deeded it to Asher H. 
Barton, Eliza S. Barton, Joseph C, Richardson, William P. 
Heald, Albert D. Hinds, Isaac Abbott, Albert Ludwig, 
George W. Reed and William K. Lunt. They sold it to dis- 
trict No. 5 in the same month, reserving the right to hold a 
high school in it for two terms a year. The building was 
destroyed by fire in 1870. It was rebuilt in 1871, and in

DAM BUILDERS 



Many of the leading men of Benton have given their 
chief attention to building stone and wooden dams, and 
bridge abutments. The maddening rush of nearly every 
river in New England has been checked by the labor of these 
men, who face many dangers in their difficult occupation; nor 
is their work confined to New England, for several dams at 
Plattsburg, N. Y,, on the Saranac river, while many scat- 
tered throughout Cape Breton, Canada and Ontario, are of 
their construction. Five substantial structures of this 
nature at Berlin Falls, and others at Rumford Falls, Liver- 
more Falls and many more, are monuments to their skill 
and perseverance. Among those who have participated in 
this work, and have had the direction of crews, are the fol- 
lowing: Wesley Brown, Fred E. Brown, Joseph Spencer, Bert 
Morrill, George Crosby, Edward Rideout, Otis Brown and 
Ferd Marcia. 



Histony of Clinton 



EARLY SETTLEMENT 

We take up tbe early settlement of Clinton b}^ the differ- 
ent sections of the town, as follows: Clinton Village, Pish- 
on's Ferry, Noble's Ferry, Morrison's Corner, Decker's 
Corner, and Woodsum's Corner. 

Settled at Clinton Village: Asa Brown and a Mr. Grant 
before 1798, on the Sebasticook about a mile east. About 
this time Jonathan Brown; previous to 1800 Jesse Baker. 
Where the cemetery now is a Mr. Michels, about the same 
time as Baker; Joseph Doe at the foot of the "Fifteen Mile 
Rips." About 1810 or '12 James and Charles Brown about 
a mile south-west of the village; David and Martin Hunter 
from Topsham about 1815. The former was locally known 
as "King David," because of his masterful waj's. 

AT PISIION's F.ERRY 

Samuel Varnum about 1789 or 1790; Charles Pishon 
before 1800; David Pratt about 1802; Abram Frees, a phy- 
sician, about 1815; John Totman at an early date; Gideon 
Wells, a tavern keeper, from Vienna about 1800; Joseph 
Mills, Benjamin Chase, the builder of the first saw^ mill at 
the Point, about 1815. 



1?8 CLINTON 

AT noble's ferry 

Beujamin Noble from Swan Island about the close of the 
Revolutionaay War settling about two miles below Pishon's; 
Deacon Joseph Spearin, just before the War, on the Jonas 
Chase farm; about one-half mile below the ferry James 
Lamb, a veteran of 1815, about 1800; Francis Low, Mephi- 
bosheth Cain and Stevens Kendall. 

AT Morrison's corner 

Mordecai Mooers first settler; John Flood piior to 1810, 
on the Ridoe road; James Morrison about 1820, on the 
Martin Jewell farm; Samuel Weymouth not far from this 
time, and a Mr. Miller who built a saw mill west of the Cor- 
ner about 181 0, which was operated about 10 ^'ears. 

AT decker's corner 

A Mr. Decker not far from 1800, his son Stephen, better 
known here, with his father at the same time; Ebenezer 
Lewis at an early date; the father of Aaron, Lewis, Abner 
and James Eldridge, not far from the close of the Revolu- 
tion, from Boston. 

AT WOODSUM's corner 

Abiathar Woodsum, the first settler, and a store keeper, 
about 1820 or a little earlier; Daniel Holt and a Mr. Good- 
win. 



INDUSTRIAL ACCOUNT 

About 1833 David Hunter, 1st, ("King David"), David 
2d, and James his brother, built the first saw mills where 



HISTORICAL 179 

the present mills now stand; and in 1834 David Hunter 1st, 
David 2d, and Jonathan Brown erected a grist mill on the 
site of that now in operation. Cain and Webber's roller 
mill was established 20 years ago by Mr, Webber and others, 
Mr. Cain entering the partnership about three j'ears later. 
They have a store in connection and do about $15,000 
worth of business annually. These men are also extensive 
lumber dealers, buying timber lots and clearing off the 
lumber. 

On the island opposite the village w^as once, in 1836, a 
shingle machine owned primarily by E. G. Hodgdon, David 
Hunter 1st, and others, but afterwards run by James 
Spaulding. About 1850 it was changed into a brush fac- 
tory, the owners being two Vermont men. After three or 
four years they sold it to Justin Brown, who for a time man- 
ufactured staves in the building. Brown sold to A, R. 
Mitchell & Co., who erected a large building for the manu- 
facture of croquet sets and brush handles. This firm failed, 
however, and the factor^" was set off to the creditors. 
Shortly after this, about 1885, the factory was burned to 
the ground. In 1881 Arthur McNally bought the land and 
the privilege. Later he built the saw" mill which he sold to 
Manly. Morrison in 1898. Fifteen men are employed in this 
mill and a large amount of business done annually. 

As early as 1840 a carding mill was built by Billings & 
Stinchfield, near the old Hunter grist mill, Billings after- 
wards bought out Stinchfleld and conducted the business 
until he died. Jesse Dorman bought the plant and run it 
until 1890, when he sold it to AVilliam Lamb. 



180 CLINTON 

Mr. Lamb ran a saw mill until 1894 when it was totally 
destroyed at the event of the second big fire. A roller mill 
was built by Will Richardson and Maurice Kendall, and 
opened in the fall of 1899. The following May Alpheus Rich- 
ardson bought out Will Richardson, and afterward assumed 
lull control. 

TANNERY 

The tannery was built in 1890 by Jonathan B. Besse, 
and is now owned and operated by his son, Frank L. Besse. 
The leather tanned is mostly sheepskin and is used for shoe 
linings. The tannery has a capacity for tanning 3000 skins 
a day, employing about 20 men. The average monthly pay 
roll is about |750. One thousand cords of hemlock bark 
are used each year at the tannery. 

Spaulding and Davis' Novelty business has developed 
into an important industry within the past few years. They 
now make six different articles of household use, viz: Clothes 
dryers, ironing tables, wall racks, sleeve boards, lace curtain 
stretchers, and the last one added, clothes tongs. Seven 
hands are employed. Last year the company sold 21,027 
pieces. 

The famous Billings axes are made here by Geo. P. Bill- 
ings, whose father established the business here many years 
ago. A sawmill near Pishon's Ferry is in active operation, 
Geo. Ricker proprietor.

ECCLESIASTICAL 

Religious worship and a society was established soon 
after the incorporation of the town. The earliest form was 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, organized about 1800. 
Reverends D. B. Randall, James Farrington, Theodore Hill, 
Benj. B. Byrne and others were early pastors. In 1866-7 
the edifice on Church street was erected. Over .f3,000 was 
expended in 1884 in enlargingand beautifying the buildings, 
erecting a chapel, and buying the parsonage. The present 
membership is about sixty-five. The Benton M. E. church 
is also considered a part of this charge. The following is a 
list of pastors since the records have been preserved: Revs. 
Hiram Murth^^ 1857; Theodore Hill, 1858; Jesse Harriman, 
1859; B. B. Byrne, 1861; Lewis Wentworth, 1863; H. P. 
Blood, 1864; D. M. True, 1867; G. G. Winslow, 1868; C. H.

The first church erected in the village was the old Union 
church built about 1847, and jointly occupied by the Meth- 
odists, Congregationalists and Universalists. 

FREE BAPTIST 

The society was organized in February 1888, with but 
14 members. The church is located on Western Ave., and 
cost about $4,000. Rev. Albert D. Dodge was the first 
pastor, serving for five years, when he was followed by Rev. 
L. S. Williams in 1893, Rev. E. J. Whitman in 1898, Rev. S. 
Wakeley, 1901; Edward Foster, 1905; J. L. Smith, 1908. 
Its present membership is about 70. 

A Baptist society was organized at Pishon's Ferry, 
about 1800. The society worshipped in District No. 2 
schoolbouse until Good Templars' Hall was built about 
thirty-five years ago, after which time services were held in 
the Hall for several years. The Second Free Will Baptist 
church of Clinton was organized in 1874 at Pishon's Ferrj', 
with about fifty members. Until 1890 the congregation 
worshipped on alternate Sundays in Good Templars' Hall. 
On that date they erected an edifice near the ferry where 
they have since worshipped. Their pastors have been Revs.

The Free AVill Baptist Society at Morrison's Corner was 
organized in 1827. The earl}' meetings were held in the dis- 
trict schoolhouse but a church erected in 1850 stood for 
over fifty years when it was burned. This society is extinct. 

The Christian Baptist church at AVoodsom's Corner, on 
town house hill, is another of the ancient landmarks. For 
many years Benj. P. Reed served as pastor of this society. 
He was succeeded by J. A. Johnson and the Rev. Mr. Lang, 
the last regular pastor. 



SCHOOLS 



The history of the public schools of Clinton, like that of 
other Maine towns, is the story of the founding of her earl- 
iest school by the first settlers, the continual struggle of her 
citizens against all odds to give to their children the advan- 
tages of an education. The new school building opened in 
the fall of 1902 in the village fills a long felt need and puts 
the school facilities of this live town on a footing equal to 
any town of its size in the State. There are three grades, 
each provided with its own instructor and arranged in regu- 



188 CLINTON 

lar courses. The high school which, until six years ago was 
held throughout the town at the different school buildings, 
is now permanently located here. This new structure was 
constructed at a cost of |8000 and is entirel}"^ modern in its 
construction. 



DAM BUILDERS 

The town of Clinton is noted among other things for the 
number of men who have been or are dam builders. The fol- 
lowing have been in charge of crews: Alpheus Brown, John 
Kennedy, Pooler Lewis, Bert Lewis, Ellis Libb}^ Ezekiel 
Brown, Geo. Ricker, Daniel Richardson and Preston Wey- 
mouth. Among others who have been engaged in the work 
of dam construction are the following: Alonzo Pratt, Frank 
McNelly, William McNelly, Moses Richardson, Mark Holt, 
James McNelly, Irvin Lewis, Frank Crommett, Hollis Lewis, 
Lezar Kelley, Lewis Wells, George Bingham, Albert Chase, 
T. A. Ricker. 



LIBRARY 

The Brown Memorial library, is the gift of one of her 
loyal and liberal sons, William W. Brown. It is a beautiful 
stone building, well designed, situated on Railroad Street. 
It was dedicated August 15, 1900, since which time its well 
chosen stacks of books have been read by a people who well 
appreciated a free public library. 



HISTORICAL 189 

THE CLINTON ADVERTISER 

The Clinton Advertiser was established in 1877 by B. F. 
Foster and was issued semi-monthly. It was an eiofht pa^e 
leaflet G x 7 inches. It has been published continually. In 
the fall of 1903 Mr. Foster sold the paper to Marcellus Cain, 
the present publisher. The regular weekly issue is now a 
welcome visitor to almost every home in town. Mr. Cain 
has definite plans for enlarging his paper in the near future 
to i>lace it on an equal footing with other local publications.

Histony of Faiitfield 



EARLY SETTLERS 

Fairfield is situated on the western side of the Kennebec 
river, three miles north of Waterville, and 20 from Augusta, 
It is the most southerly town in Somerset county, and is 
bounded on the north by Norridgewock and Skowhegan, on 
the east by the Kennebec river, on the south by Waterville 
and Oakland and on the west by Smithfield. Its total area 
is about 42 square miles. It is probable that the banks of 
the river were explored long before any permanent settle- 
ments were made, as the river formed the principle thorough- 
fare then in use. We are told that when Colonel Benedict 
Arnold was raising volunteers to join his famous expedition 
up the Kennebec in 1775, that David Emery enlisted in Sep- 
tember that year leaving his farm on what is now the River 
road in this town. We also find that Samuel Emery was 
born in Fairfield, June 15, 1773, being the first white child 
born in this town. So we conclude that Mr. Emery was the 
first settler that we have any record of at this time, 

Peter Pushard was probably the first to locate perma- 
nently in the southern part of this town. His cabin was 
on the lot now occupied by tlie beautiful residence of Chas. 
Lawrence, in about 1774. 



194 FAiRFIELt) 

About 1780 William Kendall came here having bought 
up most of the land now occupied by the village. Heerected 
a log cabin near the upper end of the island and dug the 
cellar upon which he not long after built the first frame 
house in the village. This house still stands and is now 
occupied by his grandchildren, Mrs. Carter and Mr. Wra. F. 
Kendall. In 1781 it is supposed he built the first saw and 
grist mills. These he located on the upper end of the nut- 
ural canal which has furnished power for so many mills dur- 
ing the past century and a quarter. On Christmas day 1782 
he married Abagail Chase at Noble's Ferry, near the jjresent 
Good Will Farm, and drifted down the river in a birch canoe 
to the home thus prepared in the wilderness. Capt. William 
Kendall, a soldier of the Revolution, enlisted March 12, 
1777, and served three years. He with Mr. Emery, who was 
also a soldier, is buried in the Emery Burying Ground. 

Elihu, Harper, and Zaccheus Bowerman came here from 
Falmouth, Mass., 1782. These and other members of the 
same family settled near the central part of the town and 
were among the leading men of the early settlement, as well 
as now being represented by many prominent descendants. 

Some of the early settlers on the River road running 
south of David Emery's, who has already been mentioned, 
were Capt. Isaac Chase, who had five sons and seven daught- 
ers, all of his sons holding some military office during their 
lives; Esq. Low, who settled on the lot afterward sold for its 
water power and upon which Shawmut now stands; George 
Hobbs, noted for moving buildings; Rev. Wilson Colcord, 
who labored on his farm during the week, and in the pulpit 



HISTORICAL 195 

on the Sabbath; Beiij. Burrill, Davin Pearson, known as the 
neatest, and perhaps the thriftiest farmer on the road; Wil- 
son Colcord, Jr., Timothy Osborne, Andrew Hanson, John 
Durrelland James and Samuel Emery, who settled on Emery 
Hill. They built a saw mill just above the location of the 
present bridge on the stream which it is said ran much 
stronger then than now. 

Samuel To bey was another of the early arrivals in the 
town. 



INCORPORATION 

Fairfield was incorporated June 17, 1788. 

The first warrant was directed to Samuel Tobey, and 
the first meeting held in the dwelling house of Seth Fuller on 
thelDthdayof August, 1788. Daniel Cony, Esq., was chosen 
moderator; Samuel Tobey, town clerk; Josiah Burgess, Elihu 
Bowerman and Joseph Town, selectmen and assessors; Sam- 
uel Tobey, treasurer; Gideon Holway, constable; and Joshua 
Blackwell, collector. Tything men, and other necessary 
officers were also elected. The second meeting was held the 
following March at which John Mandal was elected consta- 
ble. 

At the meeting held the next month at the home of 
Israel Blackwell, the town threw its first vote for governor; 
the record says there were 15 votes for John Hancock.

1802 — Town meeting held in the new meeting house. 
Previous to this the meetings had been held at the homes of 
several of the citizens. (This meeting house was situated at 
Fairfield Centre, and was used for sometime as a meeting 
place for transacting town business; in 1847 the town pur- 
chased it of the pew holders who had previously bought the 
church of the town, and it was used as the town house until 
that body began its sessions at the village.) 

1808— Voted that wheat, rye and corn be a legal tender 
in payment of taxes, the prices to be 6s, 5s and 4s, per 
bushel respectively.

CHURCHES 

The Friends seem to have been the first to do active 
church work in town, beginning about 1788. 

The town early took measures to secure preaching. In 
1793 they raised 30 pounds ( t30) for the support of the 
gospel. Two years after the incorporation of the town, it 



HISTORICAL 203 

was voted to build a lueetiDg house. This was a union 
house and built at Fairfield Centre. In a few years the town 
sold the pews to purchasers, some of whom paid as hij^h as 
$50 for a single pew. The pew owners afterwards deeded 
them to Hiram Burgess, and he to the town in 1847, for the 
sum of |150. For two years previous to this purchase the 
subject of a town jhall had been agitated, one party striv- 
ing for a new hall, and the other advocating the purchase 
of the old meeting house. But the matter was amicably 
settled by the purchase of that original meeting house. The 
Friends house was built at North Fairfield about 10 years 
earlier and was twice rebuilt. 

FAIRFIELD CENTRE METHODIST SOCIETY 

The following is given by Mr. Ansel L. Nye, gathered 
from various sources, chiefly from the history of Methodism 
in Maine, by Stephen Allen and W. H. Pillsburj'. 

The first Methodist sermon preached in Fairfield was by 
Jesse Lee, March 5, 1794, at Fairfield Centre. He preached 
here again Aug 24, 1808. There was a meeting house built 
here in the early settlement of the town, in which occasional 
meetings were held. The first revival was in 1809, under 
the labors of Ebenezer F. Newell, the circuit preacher. For 
several years the meetings were held at the house of Elisha 
Nye. The present meeting-house was built as a Union house 
in 1837. 

The following is a list of the preachers appointed to 
this charge from 1821 to 1877. This church is now united 
with Fairfield village and has regular preaching on Sunday

M. E. CHFKCH, FAIRFIELD VILLAGE 

The following account is taken from the records made 
by Rev. Ezekiel Robinson, up to 1859, and added to by suc- 
ceeding pastors. 

According to an account by Rev. Ezekial Robinson, the 
first sermon preached by a Methodist in the village, then 
known as Kendalls Mills, was by Ezekial Robinson, in the 
summer of 1827. 

In 1831 Rev. Joshua Nye, a local preacher, began 
preaching at the village, preaching regularly once a month. 
Two years after this he removed to the village where he re- 
mained until his death, in 1856. He was called "Father 
Nye" by his devoted people. 



HISTORICAL 205 

Iq 1839 a house of worship, GO feet long and 40 feet 
wide, to be called the "Union Meetino-house," was built and 
dedicated. 

In 1845 Rev. J. Thying commenced preaching once a 
month. Father Nye preached the remaining Sabbaths. 

In 1850 Rev. Cornelius Stone was appointed the regular 
pastor, but after one year the work was again turned over 
to Father Nye. At this time there were 70 members in full 
standing. 

In 1852 the church was owned and provided for equally 
by the Congregationalists and Methodists. The Methodists 
were served by the pastors of the Waterville charge for a 
few years until 1858, when Rev, Mr. Robinson was appoint- 
ed to the circuit. Those appointed to this charge succeed- 
ing Mr. Robinson were Rev. W. Hideout, appointed in 1859, 
serving until the next appointment; B. Foster, 18G1; Wm. 
H. Strout, 18G3; J. Mitchell, 18G4; J. W. Hathaway, 1865; 
A. R. Sylvester, 18GG; True P. Adams, 18G8; D. B. Randall, 
1870, who served three years, and raised the church, adding 
the lecture room as a lower story; Rev. H. B. Abbott, 1873; 
Perry Chandler, 1875; K. Atkinson, 1877; C. F. Allen, 1879; 
C. Munger, 1881; J. A. Corey, 1882; D. B. Holt, 1885; E. L. 
Allen, 1888; H. H. Clark, 1889; Wm. S. Fitch, 1900^ H. 
Chase, 1891; O. S. Pilsbury, 1895; G. R. Palmer, 1900. He 
served the church until the appointment of Rev. J, H. Rob- 
erts the present pastor. 

UNIVERSALIST 

The Uuiverealists sold out their interests in the union 
house and in 185G built the Uaiversalist Meeting: house. 



20G FAIRFIELD 

A meeting on Nov. 10, 1885, petitioned for bj R. H. Aldrieh, 
V. R. Connor, F. P. Wing, J. P. Totman and H. F. Thomp- 
son, met at the old Universalist church. Rev. R. H. Aldrieh 
was the first pastor of the organization. In 188G a lot was 
bought by subscription for the location of a new church on 
High street, but it was decided to remodel the old structure 
which was done during the pastorate of Rev. S. G. Davis, 
who came to the church in 1889. Rev. E. L. Houghton 
came to the church in 1891. After 1894 the pulpit was 
filled by supplies until the arrival of Rev. J. F. Rhodes in 
1898. The pipe organ, run by water motor, was purchased 
in 1898 by subscription. In 1902 Rev. James Peardon be- 
came pastor. F. E. Barton is the present pastor. 

BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Baptist Society was organized on Sept. 18, 1876, 
with twelve charter members, in the Chapel which had been 
dedicated the previous year. Rev. B. F. Shaw was the first 
pastor. Rev. D. Pope became pastor in 1878 for one year. 
Rev. Frank Jones followed him remaining but three months. 
Succeeding pastors: Rev. C. C. Tilley until 1882. (During 
his pastorate the parsonage, situated just north of the 
church on Newhall street was erected.) Rev. N. D. Curtis, 
1885 until 1891; Rev. A. K. P. Small from 1891 to 1893; 
Rev. N. T. Dutton, from 1893 to 1896; Rev. E. N. Fletcher, 
1896 to '98; Rev. H. M. Ives, 1898 until March 29, 1904. 

The Chapel was improved and enlarged in 1888, costing 
12,600. It was rededicated Feb. 28, 1887. The bell was 
hung about this time, the gift of the Newton Baptist Church. 



HISTORICAL 207 

The church was a^ain remodeled 1899 aud the vestry added. 
J. L, Clark is the preseut pastor, 

CHURCH OP THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY 

Fairfield has been a mission parish since 1870 and up 
to the time of the appointment of Rev. Louis Berj^eron it 
was under the charge of the pastor of the church at Water- 
ville. Rev. Father Halde attended for a long time and Rev. 
Father Charland, who is the present pastor of St. Francis 
de Sales' church at Waterville, also had charge for a number 
of years. 

The first Chapel was put up in 1880, but it was soon 
seen that it was not large enough to accommodate all the 
Catholics. Father Charland was succeeded by Rev. Louis 
Bergeron, the first resident pastor. 

The corner stone of the new church building was laid in 
August, 1892, It was completed the next year and dedi- 
cated the 16th day of July, 1893. 

The old chapel, moved over near the new church build- 
ing, is now used as a wiuter chapel or vestry. 

Father Bergeron was succeeded by Fr. P. A, Jouvin, 
Dec, 1, 1899. Since Fr. Jouvin took charge of the parish he 
has bought a rectory at a cost of $2500 and has paid |2000 
on the old debt. The church has also been improved and 
the rectory furnished. 

Besides his duties in Fairfield village Fr. Jouvin has 
charge of the mission at Shawmut where there is a good 
Catholic community of about 40 families. 



208 FAIRFIELD 

SHAWM DT CHURCH 

The church edifice at Shawmut was erected as an Episco- 
pal house about fifteen years ago. Union Church Society 
was also formed in the village and held its meetings in the 
old Club Room. In the spring of 1904 the church was 
bought by subscription for the Union Society. It has been 
moved and is now occupied regularly, but no pastor is 
located here. 

There is also a Free Baptist Society, but this is now do- 
ing but little active work. The Chapel was sold to the Cath- 
olic Societies of Christopher Columbus and St. John Baptist 
for a society hall. 

The Advents have a Hall where they worship in the vil- 
lage. There is also a Union Mission where regular meetings 
are held. G. VV. Hinckley is pastor of the Union Church at 
Hinckley. 



SCHOOL ITEMS 

The town was first divided into school districts, and 
places selected for the erection of schoolhouses, in 1793. 
These divisions were made by Josiah Burgess and Daniel 
Shepherd. 

We find that the following year the town raised the sum 
of £00 for schools and houses (also £10 for preaching). 
"Class Masters" were chosen for the several "classes." In 
1803 we find there were 11 districts, as they were then called, 



HISTORICAL 209 

in 1826 this number had increased to 15; and in 1879 there 
were 18. In 1875 the first school supervisor, J araes Plum- 
mer, was elected to look after the town school. 

HIGH SCHOOL 

In the year 1874, $500 was raised for a free high school 
in this town. The direct object of the high school was to offer 
to the older and more advanced pupils a chance to attend 
school during the winter months. The sum of flOO was 
raised annually for the support of the high school w'hich 
gradually but surely raised its standard of scholarship. 

This is now a fitting school for the Colleges, having long 
since become an independent institution. Fourteen years 
ago Walter Francis Kenrick began as principal of the school, 
and to him and his untiring endeavors is duo the strength 
and efficiency of the present high school. He remained for 
several years, being succeeded in 1903 by Guy C. Healey, 
who did excellent work for one year. Harry Emery Pratt, 
the present principal, began in 1901. 



GOOD WILL FARM 

Good Will Farm, the home for bojs, which has now 
acquired a world wide reputation, was early conceived in the 
mind of its founder and director, Eev. George W. Hinckley. 
1889— Founded on the Chase farm bj'^ Rev. G. W. Hinckley; 
formally opened for boys in September; Good Will Asso- 
ciation organized in November. 
1890— Sunshine Cottage added; dedicated September 1. 



210 FAIRFIELD 

1891 — Golden Rule Cottage dedicated September 1; also 
Prospect Cottage was dedicated the same time. 

1892— Fogg Cottage and Bailey Cottage dedicated Septem- 
ber 1. Later Christian Endeavor Cottage was opened. 

1895— Mary Louise Hall, dedicated Dec. 31; Chas. E. Moody 
School Building, the following day: Elizabeth Wilcox 
Smith Cottage, a home for girls, was soon after opened. 

1897— Moody Memorial Chapel dedicated, June 16th. 
Grange Cottage built this same summer. 

1900— Emily F. Ryerson Memorial School Building con- 
structed. 

1903— The dormitory, "Buckmiuster," and the Manual 
Training building, "Quincy," opened. 

1904 — Bancroft-Foote House dedicated in September. 

This institution is a monument to the untiring effort and 

wisdom of Bev. G. W. Hinckley. It has grown wonderfully 

and bids fair to keep up its progress in the years to come. 

The place it fills is now recognized as almost infinite in its 

scope. Besides the great institution of Manual Training 

there is a regular publication largely done by the students 

called the Good Will Record. 



FACTS OF INTEREST 

VILLAGE CORPORATION 

This village was incorporated as such in March, 185G, 
under the name of Kendall's Mills Village Corporation. The 
first officers were, E. W. McFadden, Clerki Josej^h F. Nye, 



HISTORICAL 211 

Treas. and Col.; Orin Woodman, E, G. Pratt and Geo. Rich- 
ardson, Assessors. 

The Corporation maintains a fire department, a night 
watchman and a day police, the water department, and elec- 
tric liohts. 

Afire department has been maintained ever since I80G 
when the old Victor Engine was brought to town. The Vic- 
tor fire company was formed July 15, the meeting being held 
in the North schoolhouse, James F. Moses being chosen fore- 
man. 

There is now excellent steamer and hydrant service 
throughout the entire village. The Steamer ''Amoskeag" 
now in use, was bought in Mauchester, N. H., in 1882. The 
engine house centrally located on Bridge street was built the 
same year. 

The electric lighting plant was put in about 188G when 
ten of Fairfield's most prominent citizens invested in the 
power. The plant was later sold to the Waterville and Fair- 
field Light and Power Co., which company operates the 
lighting system of both places, and also the efficient railroad 
system which so closely connects this village with an enter- 
prising city. 

LAWRENCE PUBLIC LIBRARY 

This Library was erected in 1901 on a lot given by Mrs. 
Newhall, on Lawrence Ave. The building is a beautiful stone 
structure, artistically finished and decorated, dedicated July 
24, 1901; Ilezekiah Butterworth, the well known writer, 
deliverino- the address. 



212 FAIRFIELD 

Frances Kenrick has served as librarian since it was 
opened. Tlie library contains over 5,000 volumes, while 
there are 29 reo-ular periodical publications found upon its 
tables. 

Mr, Lawrence and Mrs. Newhall, the donors, give annu- 
ally for its support the sum of |500, while the town raises 
the sum of |G00. 

VICTOR GRANGE 

Victor Grange, No 49, was organized October 29, 1874 
with 29 charter members. This is one of the most prosper- 
ous and successful granges in the state and has met with a 
remarkable growth. A new hall erected at Fairfield Center 
is the home of the organization. This building was dedi- 
cated October 1, 1903, and is one of which its many mem- 
bers are proud. 

THE FAIRFIELD JOURNAL 

The Fairfield Journal was established in 1862 since 
which time it has continued regularly. Mr. A, C. Ladd took 
possession of the Journal in 1897. He sold to the Fairfield 
Journal Publishing Company, Dec. 31, 190G.
