Historic Kingsbury Plantation: A Legacy of Natural Beauty

Kingsbury Plantation holds a rich history, dating back to its acquisition by Judge Sanford Kingsbury in 1833 as part of the Bingham Purchase. With its early development around Kingsbury Pond, including the establishment of two mills in 1835, this area quickly grew into a community. Today, the mills are gone and the Plantation is very quiet and peaceful with a population of only 28. Enjoy the rolling hills, surrounding mountains, numerous lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds of this scenic part of Maine.

A Closer Look at This Land

Spanning 309± acres, this property is a testament to the natural beauty of Maine. It encompasses 276± acres of forested land, 27± acres of ponds, wetlands, and streams, and 6± acres dedicated to roads. The terrain is a blend of rolling land with elevations ranging from 900 to 1,160 feet above sea level. Nearly 90% of the area is covered in hardwoods, with mixed wood and softwoods around the pond and its outlet, showcasing the diversity of this location.

The soil, as reported by NRCS, varies across the property, with well-drained areas on the upper ridges and somewhat poorly drained areas in the valleys. This mix supports a rich ecosystem, including red spruce, white spruce, balsam fir, yellow birch, paper birch, and red maple.

Central to the property is Little Pond, nearly 10 acres of high-quality wading bird habitat. It's an area designated for resource protection, ensuring the preservation of its natural beauty and wildlife, including ducks, geese, moose, deer, beaver, otter, and other water loving animals. With building setbacks required to be 250 feet, any development will maintain the integrity of this pristine environment.

The outlet of Little Pond flows north though the property on the way to its confluence with Kingsbury Stream.
