Elliottsville is an extinct town, and extinct plantation, now an unorganized territory (township) in the Northeast Piscataquis townships in Piscataquis County, Maine. The town was created from Township 8, Eighth Range North of Waldo Patent (T8 R9 NWP) in 1835. Elliottsville annexed the land of Wilson in 1849. Elliottville's incorporation was surrendered and its status was changed to unorganized territory in 1858.[1] Later, this Elliottsville Township was organized into a plantation in 1895.[2] The plantation organization was repealed in 1982, and since then it has been unorganized territory.[3] [4]
