Berwick, Maine, USA

Berwick is a town in York County, Maine, United States, situated in the southern part of the state beside the Salmon Falls River.

South Berwick was set off from Berwick in 1814, North Berwick in 1831.

Originally part of Kittery, the area later comprised by Berwick was settled about 1631 and called Kittery Commons or Kittery North Parish. It was later called Unity after the ship that transported Scots prisoners of war from the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 to the colonies...

The raid by Indians in 1675 was the first of several during what was known as King Philip's War. In 1690–1691 during King William's War, the village was burned and abandoned in the Raid on Salmon Falls. It was resettled in 1703 and called Newichawannock, its old Abenaki name.
