Wiscasset, Maine, USA

Wiscasset is a town in Lincoln County, incorporated on February 13, 1760 as the town of Pownalborough from the former Frankfort Plantation.

In 1605, explorer Samuel de Champlain arrived in Wiscasset and met with Native Americans. When the town was established, the Pownalborough Courthouse (in Dresden, once a part of Wiscasset) was built to serve the area. The fifteenth town chartered in Maine, it was named for Massachusetts Governor Thomas Pownall.

The name was changed to its Indian designation, Wiscasset, on June 10, 1802.
