Historical Facts About Old Town

  • Present-day Indian Island was the headquarters of the Tarratine Native American tribe before the first white settlers came. The Tarratines are direct ancestors of the Penobscots. The island's central location made it convenient for their seasonal migrations, and it was also more easily defended than some of their other settlements. The name Old Town is an acknowledgment of this heritage.
  • Joseph Marsh built a home on the south end of the island that now bears his name in 1774.
  • The early economy in Old Town was fueled by the lumber industry. The city's economic development was sparked in 1798 when Richard Winslow built a water-powered sawmill. Access to woods, water and markets ensured the area's success.
