Bingham, a town in Somerset County, formerly T1 R1, in William Bingham's Kennebec Purchase, was incorporated on February 06, 1812.
Named for William Bingham, the town was included in his second purchase of Maine lands, which consisted primarily of what is now Somerset County.
Settled in 1785, it was the one hundred and eighty-ninth town in the District of Maine. The records of the first town clerk, Ephraim Woods, are still available.
Located on the Kennebec River, U.S. Route 201, its Main Street, carries visitors to and from Quebec City, and logging trucks bound for paper mills down the River.
Until the 1970's, the Kennebec and other rivers were clogged with logs floating down to paper mills in Madison and Winslow. A successful private lawsuit ended the practice and returned the resource to all the people of Maine.
