Palmyra a town in Somerset County was incorporated June 20, 1807 from the township T5 R3 NWP. It later set off land to Pittsfield in 1824 when it was known as Warsaw and in 1828.
Originally known as Shepherdstown after an early land agent, the area was first settled by Daniel Gale and his family in 1800.
Later, travelers on the stage coach line from Norridgewock to Bangor stopped at a local tavern, the halfway point, for food and a change of horses. U.S. Route 2 appears to follow the old stage trail.
The Sebasticook River empties into Douglas Pond at the south end of the town, just above Pittsfield.
