Welcome to Gilead
Maine An EncyclopediaWelcome to Gilead

The town of Gilead was incorporated in 1804, and, unlike many small Maine towns, has managed to maintain its small population of several hundred people over the years. The narrow area of the town borders New Hampshire and clings to the Androscoggin River as it flows east, with Route 2 along its banks. The town was once a stop on the local section of the Grand Trunk Railroad.
