Maine Town Histories

General Bibliographies of Maine Town Histories

Except Liberty and Montville: see entries for Davistown Plantation

There are a number of sources listing town histories which will be cited below.  The most important of these is Maine a bibliography of its history, 1977.  Most of the important histories are included in this reference, but its contents are not available electronically.  The primary focus of The Davistown Museum is on the histories of towns adjacent to Liberty and Montville or within the capital region east of Cape Elizabeth.  Due to limited resources we are not attempting to collate an updated comprehensive listing of all Maine town histories.  However, since Haskell's bibliography was published n 1977, all citations not in Haskell or in our more selective bibliography are solicited.
