Swan's Island is a town in Hancock County, incorporated on March 26, 1897 from Swan's Island Plantation.
Champlain visited the island a century and a half before Colonel James Swan of Fifeshire, Scotland purchased it in 1765. Swan built a mansion on the island but was thrown, unjustly, into debtor's prison by the French in 1808 and remained there for twenty-two years, dying days after his release.
Beaches and picnic areas may be found at the villages of Minturn and Atlantic, in addition to Swan's Island village.
