Monson is a town in Piscataquis County, settled in 1818 and incorporated on February 8, 1822 from township T9 R8 NWP.
In 1807, one half of the original township was granted to Monson Academy of Massachusetts; the other half to Hebron Academy in the District of Maine.
Named for the Massachusetts town from which many of the early settlers came, the town lies on a slate ridge many miles long. In Maine, Monson often means slate to those who know that its high quality products have been shipped worldwide.
The main village is on Maine combined Route 6 and 15 along the eastern shore of Lake Hebron. The Appalachian Trail runs along the north western portion of the lake, then veers north toward the Doughty Ponds.
