Burlington is a town in Penobscot County, incorporated on March 8, 1832 from the unorganized township of T2 R1 NBPP, EPR. Named for a Massachusetts town, it annexed two-mile strip in 1835 and some additional land from Lowell in 1847.
The township was first settled in 1824, probably by Tristam Hurd who donated the name Hurd Ridge to the area. Lumbering and agriculture have been the main occupations ever since.
The town is about 45 miles north of Bangor, and east of the Howland exit on Interstate 95 following Route 188 east from Enfield.
Saponac Lake in the south end of the town and at the north end of Grand Falls Township is from the Indian word for the big opening. Originally Chibanook, the lake was a big opening when ascending the Passadumkeag River.
