Lee is a town in Penobscot County, incorporated on February 3, 1832 from township T2 R2 NBPP, EPR. As a township it was originally a grant to Williams College.
Settlement began in 1824 and consisted of at least thirty families by 1828. Stephen Lee was one of those settlers; the town was named in his honor.
Lee sits astride Maine Route 6, the site of an old military road from Lincoln through Lee and Springfield, then on to Houlton. The Houlton portion is probably the current Maine Route 169 which links Springfield with Danforth and then joins U.S. Route 1 for the journey north.
Lee Academy was established on land once a summer resort. The former Mount Jefferson Hotel was turned into a boys dormitory.
