About Dennysville

A Lubec, Maine, neighbor

Dennysville was settled in 1786 and incorporated in 1818. The town lies along the bank of the Dennys River, which is one of six Maine rivers that are home to the Atlantic salmon. When in town, visit the Lincoln House (1787, on the National Register of Historic Places), Soldiers Monument (1916), Old Dennysville Academy (c 1846), the Congregational Church (1843), Lincoln Memorial Library (1913), the old cemetery and the History Museum. There are also several old homes of architectural interest along the main street.

The population was 342 at the 2010 census.

The Dennys River Historical Society discovers, preserves, and shares the history of the Dennys River area in Eastern Maine, with exhibits, presentations, publications, research and public events with the help of many volunteers.

Long before Maine was a state, surveyors hired by George Washington walked Washington County’s fields, forests and coastlines to create maps.  A priceless collection of six such original maps that survived for more than 200 years — one for 216 years — are on display at the Dennysville Academy-Vestry Museum.
