Monhegan Village on Monhegan Island, a Maine plantation in the Gulf of Maine, with Manana Island behind.

In Maine a plantation is a form of local self-government intended to help a town-sized area with a low population to transition toward full town status as they increase their population and government services.[1] Plantations do not have their own representative in the Maine legislature. Most have meetings and keep records of meetings. Towns and plantations maintained records of their citizens' births, marriages, and deaths from their founding until 1922, even though statewide registration began in 1892. Look for Maine plantation records the same way you look for Maine town records.

Some of Maine's populated coastal islands outside the borders of a town are organized as plantations. However, most of Maine's 34 plantations are in sparsely populated forests inland.

Status changes. Plantations that increase in population may become a town. Also, some plantations have lost population and been changed to unincorporated townships without meetings or record-keeping. If an ancestor lived in a plantation that became a township, look for the records of the former plantation in a nearby town in the same county.

Modern Maine Plantations (listed by county)[edit | edit source]

* Maine plantations normally referenced without using that descriptor. [2]

Statistics.  Maine currently has organized 34 plantations, about 425 townships (unincorporated territories), 454 towns or cities, and three Indian reservations. The unorganized township territories include slightly over half the land area of Maine.[3] |}

Discontinued Maine Plantations[edit | edit source]

Plantations which were discontinued usually transferred any records they had created to the nearest functioning town in the same county, or sometimes, to the Maine State Archives.
