Sandy River Plantation is a Maine plantation in the forests on the west central side of Franklin County. Early, it was part of a multi-township plantation called Number 2 and 3 R1 and 2 and 3 R2 Plantations formed from:

but that long name was changed to Dallas Plantation in 1845, and changed in turn to Rangeley Plantation in 1852. Multi-township plantations were abolished in 1859, and it was split into four parts, including the present-day Sandy River Plantation. In 1865 the northern half was set off to form Greenvale Plantation, but it was annexed back into Sandy River Plantation in 1905.[1] [2] [3]
