Cornville

Cornville is a town in Som­er­set County, incor­po­rated on Feb­ru­ary 24, 1798 from the unor­ga­nized town­ship of T2 R1, N.P.C., E.K.R. After acquir­ing the Mile and a half Strip in 1807, it con­ceded land in sev­eral trans­ac­tions in the 1830’s to Mil­burn to reach its cur­rent boundaries.

Orig­i­nally called Bernad­stown No. 3 after Moses Bernard who pur­chased it from Mass­a­chu­setts, it gained its per­ma­nent name from the rich­ness and pro­duc­tiv­ity of its soil, espe­cially for Indian corn. Early white set­tlers arrived in the mid-1790’s, attracted by the abil­ity to pur­chase large tracts of land in the Maine wilderness.

By the dawn of the nine­teenth cen­tury, sev­eral mills and a tan­nery were estab­lished on the Wesserun­set River.

Just north of Skowhe­gan on Maine Route 150, Cornville is a grow­ing com­mu­nity in a rural setting.
