Description of City/Town

The Maine Central Railroad passes through the south-eastern part, having a station at East Pittsfield….The streams are small except the Sebasticook, on which at East Pittsfield are the principal manufactories. There are here a saw-mill...a woolen-mill, a grain-mill, etc. The Maine Central Institute, near this village, has an elegant building, with suitable appointments, and is an excellent and flourishing school. It fits many students for Bates and other colleges.
