Bowdoin is a town in Sagadahoc County, incorporated on March 21, 1788 from the early plantation of West Bowdoinham.
In 1799 it ceded land to form Thompsonborough, whose name changed to Lisbon in 1802, and ceded additional territory to Lisbon in 1834.
Bowdoin has tripled in population since 1970, and increased nearly 24% between 1990 and 2000. Still rural, the town is becoming a commuter community with easy access to Interstate 95 and to the Lewiston-Auburn area.
It was named for James Bowdoin II, an early governor of Massachusetts.
