Fairfield, Somerset, ME

According to state records, the entire area originally was the Fairfield Plantation. Settlement in the plantation may be said to date back to 1771 when Jonathan Emery built a house on Emery Hill near the banks of the Kennebec River. Other settlers established themselves nearby and a small community began to develop. In 1780, William Kendall purchased the mill of an earlier settler (Jonas Dutton) as well as much of the land in the area. The entire village area came to be known as Kendall's Mills?.

While the Kendall's Mills settlement was developing, a second population center was established. On October 11, 1781, Joseph Dimmock and Joseph Nye (both of Cape Cod in Massachusetts) purchased an 18-square mile tract of land in the Fairfield Plantation. Within a five year period, sixty lots were surveyed and settled. Nearby, a group of Quakers under the Bowerman brothers established a third settlement in North Fairfield in 1782.
