Dearborn is an extinct town and plantation, now split among the towns of Belgrade, Oakland, and Waterville in Kennebec County, and the towns of Fairfield, and Smithfield in Somerset County. The town of Dearborn was first settled in 1782, and formed from the West Pond Plantation in 1812. Dearborn land was set off to Waterville in 1815, 1822, and 1826; set off to Belgrade 1834 and 1839; and set off to Smithfield 1840. Dearborn surrendered its town status in 1841 and became a plantation, which in 1843 was annexed by Waterville, Maine and later set off to form what is now Oakland. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
