History

Camden, used to be called Cambden Plantation, was informally recognized as Megunticook, which is a Native American term that means big mountain harbor. Inhabitants settled in this town as early as the year 1768, and when the populace had grown to 331, a government of the town was necessary, so they can construct schools, roads, bridges, and more. At that time, the town consisted of Glen Cove, West Rockport, Rockport, and Rockville. An appeal was then brought to General Court of Massachusetts and was approved. The District of Maine before the statehood in the year 1820 was part of Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Around the harbor of the town were windjammers, lobster men and fishermen who sail on a weekly basis and a number of day trippers. There is a storage facility, yacht repair and service on the east part of the region.

Young women and men left Camden in order to be of service to the country. The town served as the Revolutionary War center for Penobscot Bay. Vessels were restored and constructed for the 1812 war. Harbor Park had a boulder that honors the veterans of Spanish-American War, and close to this area is a statute for the veterans of the Civil War. Camden pays homage to the others who had served the US from this town with lovely stonework Honor Roll located in Village Green that has more than 1,100 names.

Downtown boasts of a variety of locally owned stores, galleries and boutiques with an unrivaled collection of books, memorabilia, clothing, local creations, jewelry, art, and gifts.
