The Town of Athens, Maine has been around for well over two hundred years and like many Maine towns gone through ups and downs. We think we are on an upswing and hope to continue to grow and prosper and keep all those interested in our little town and the surrounding area informed through this site.

Athens was settled by Revolutionary War soldiers. Our town is in Somerset County and was incorporated on March 7, 1804. In 1821 it annexed land from Hartland, and later from Brighton in 1838 and 1862.
The main village in the town is north of Skowhegan following Route 150 to the junction with state routes 43 and 151. It is located at the fork of the East and West branches of Wesserunsett Stream, which joins the Kennebec River just below Skowhegan. The 110-year-old Grange Hall is in the middle of the village.
