Waterboro is a town in York County, incorporated on March 3, 1787 from Massabesic Plantation. Colonel Joshua Waters, a proprietor, lent his name to the town.
Though lumbering began thriving about 1764, the first settler arrived in 1768 at Waterborough Old Corners.
Waterboro Barrens is a 2,140-acre Nature Conservancy preserve, one of the largest and best preserved pitch pine barrens in Maine. The barrens, located near Lake Sherburne, last burned in the forest fires that swept the state in 1947 and ravaged the town. Pitch pine, however, are very fire resistant.
In the last thirty years the town's population has grown phenomenally, having quintupled in that period, and over one-third in the 1990-2000 decade alone.
