Mount Tabor was chartered August 28, 1761, by Benning Wentworth, of New Hampshire, under the name of "Harwick," to Jonathan Willard and sixty others. It contained 23,040 acres, and the usual reservations were made for the school, ministerial and governor's lots. The town was organized on the 17th of March, 1788.
The name of the town was changed from " Harwick " to Mount Tabor in 1803, the change being made on account of there being a town named Hardwick already in the State, which led to confusion in delivering mail. Mount Tabor was named for Gideon Tabor, a Revolutionary War veteran.
The town population was 255 at the 2010 census.
