Corinna is a town in Penobscot County, incorporated on December 11, 1818 from T4 R4 NWP township. On January 26, 1852 the boundary between Corinna and Dexter was established by Private and Special Law 460.
Dr. John Warren of Boston bought the township from Massachusetts in 1804 and encouraged settlement by giving away some land and erecting a combination grist/saw mill.
Although the inhabitants had asked for it to be named North Woods, the town was named in honor of Dr. Warren's daughter.
Corinna is the birthplace of Gilbert Patten (1866) who wrote the Frank Merriwell series of boys books under the name Bert L. Standish.
Just south of Dexter, the main village is at the junction of the Sebasticook River and Maine Routes 7, 11, 43, and 222.
