New Vineyard, Franklin, ME

New Vineyard a town in Franklin County, incorporated on February 22, 1802 from township T2 R1 WKR. It ceded land to Industry in 1815 and 1844, and to Anson in 1840. The town annexed land from Strong in 1856 to complete its modern boundaries with surrounding towns.

Settled in 1791, many early arrivals came to escape the heavy and illegal fees imposed by land agents in the Kennebec River Valley. The name derives from the early owners of the township who were from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts...
