Abstract

Freeman Township, south of Kingfield, was one of two remote townships the state of Massachusetts granted to the survivors of the burning of Portland, then called Falmouth, during the Revolutionary War. By 1940, population had diminished from a peak of 838 a century earlier to 202 residents, and the town became an unincorporated territory. Today residents can see the remains of moldering homesteads in the forest.
