ⓘ Carthage, Maine

First known as Plantation No. 4, Abbotts Purchase, it was part of a large tract of land bought in 1815 by Jacob Abbott of Wilton, New Hampshire from Jonathan Phillips of Boston, who had purchased an even larger tract from the state of Massachusetts about 1790. Plantation No. 4 was noted for extensive forests of pine and valuable formations of limestone. In 1804, William Bowley and his family from Bristol, New Hampshire settled in Plantation No. 4, and with his brother Oliver and father Gideon, built the first sawmill at what was called Bowleys Mills on the Webb River at the foot of Webb Lake. They built a gristmill the following year.

The town was founded in February 20, 1826 and named after Carthage, the ancient city of the Mediterranean in what is today Tunisia in North Africa. In 1849, the land was in the form of a new order of plantation 4. By 1880, when the population was 507, Carthage farms, two sawmills, a mill and a limestone quarry.
