China, Maine, USA

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is China, Maine, USA? 

China, Kennebec, Maine, USA
In 1774 a family named Clark settled in the area and established Jones' Plantation. In 1796 Jones' Plantation was incorporated as Harlem. On June 25, 1818, the Town of China was incorporated by combining Harlem, Fairfax (Albion), and Winslow.

The name of the town was chosen by Japheth Washburn. He wanted to call the town Bloomville, but people from the town of Bloomfield objected, saying that the similarity of names could cause confusion. Mr. Washburn settled on the name China, because it was the name of one of his favorite hymns. This hymn, now known as Jesus Loves Me, was then titled China in some hymnals.wikipedia
