"Eddington is a rural town in southern Penobscot County, settled in 1780 and incorporated on February 22, 1811 from Eddington Plantation. It annexed land from Jarvis Gore in 1823 and from Brewer in 1846 and 1855. Eddington has a population of 2,225 and is 27 square miles in size. The town is named for a Massachusetts native, Jonathan Eddy, who moved to Nova Scotia about 1758, became successful and prominent there, but returned to Boston to volunteer his services in the Revolutionary War. In 1785 he and nineteen other refugees from Nova Scotia were given 9,000 acres of land in what was to become Eddington."[1] Source- Eddington, Maine official website.
