Litchfield, Maine, USA - Loon Pond

Litchfield, Kennebec, Maine, USA
Litchfield was organized as a town in 1795, before which it was known as Smithfield Plantation. Town meetings were held in Daniel Nickerson's house until 1813, then in the North Litchfield Baptist meeting house until 1840, and in the Free Baptist meeting house in 1841. The town purchased the site and built the present town house in 1840, at a cost of $1,100.
