Penobscot is a town in Hancock County, settled in 1760 and incorporated on February 23, 1787 from Majabigwaduce Plantation, also known as Plantation Number Three.
The community takes its name from the Penobscot River, which forms its western boundary.
The discovery of about 2000 French and Spanish coins in 1840 on a hillside near the Bagaduce River led to speculation they were either pirate treasure or the Baron de Castin's family fortune, hidden during their flight from the area in 1704.
Reached from Orland off U.S. Route 1, the town is served by Maine Routes 15, 175 and 199. Northern Bay, a major spur of the Bagaduce River, splits the southern end of the town.
