Welcome to Weston!
Weston was “named for the man who surveyed the town in 1835. The land was originally granted to Hampden Academy in Maine in 1803.” (McCauley p.164 – The Names of Maine)
The town of Weston was incorporated in 1835, but much before Weston became a town, the land was significant for its water transportation. Native Americans and early settlers alike were able to travel along the waterways, which led them to Weston’s lakes. People were able to travel all the way from Bangor to Weston, where they could then travel to Houlton and even farther North. Twenty-five percent of Weston is water!
