Damariscotta is situated near the centre of Lincoln County, on the eastern side of a river of the same name. Nobleboro bounds it on the north, Bristol on the south, Bremen on the east, and Newcastle on the west. The Damariscotta River separates it from the last, and Biscay and Pemaquid Ponds, lying on the eastern line, divide the town from Bremen. Muddy and Little Ponds are the principal sheets of water within the limits of the town, the first having an area of about three-fourths of a square mile. Rocky Hill, about 150 feet in height, is the chief eminence. The surface of the town is uneven; the principal rock is granite, the soil largely a clay loam, and fairly productive. Hay is the chief crop.
