Where is Greene, Maine, USA? 

Greene is a town in Androscoggin County, Maine, United States. Greene was settled in 1773 and incorporated in 1788. Land was given off to Lewiston in 1852 and to Webster (present day Sabattus) in 1895. The last surviving American Civil War general, Aaron S. Daggett was born in Greene in 1837.

In the early settlement the area within this town was a part of Lewiston Plantation, first called Littleborough, after Moses Little of Newbury, Mass., who was a large proprietor, having obtained title to it through the Pejepscot Proprietors. The town was named Greene in honor of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, one of Gen. Washington's best officers in the Revolutionary War, and who became very popular in the North. The large number of Revolutionary soldiers settling here may have had some influence in the matter.
