Winthrop, Maine - Introduction
Winthrop, a thrifty agricultural town, lies in the south-western part of Kennebec County, 10 miles west by south-west from Augusta. It is bounded on the east by Manchester, and has West Gardiner at the south-east and Monmouth at the south, Wayne on the west and Readfield on the north. Winthrop has an area of 25,540 acres, a portion of which is water. The greater part of Cobbossee Contee Great Pond, of Annabessacook, Maranocook, Wilson's and several smaller ponds lie within the limits of the town. Maranocook Lake has now become a place of much resort in summer. It has a pretty steamer; and on the shores are convenient buildings for the regattas, musical and other entertainments held here. The lake is about 8 miles in length. The Maine Central Railroad, back route, has a station here. The numerous places where Indian relics are found show these ponds to have been favorite resorts of the aborigines. The surface is quite hilly, forming with the ponds much variety and beauty of scenery. From the town-house, which occupies an elevated position, the hills of Dixmont, a little west of the Penobscot, and a section of the White Mountains, are plainly visible. A high hill called Mount Pisgah extends nearly across the western portion of the town. The soil is good, and agriculture is the leading pursuit, the farms generally being in high cultivation. Dr. Ezekiel Holmes, widely known in con-nection with the Maine Farmer, formerly resided in Winthrop; and chiefly from his influence, stock-raising has been made a specialty, so that the Winthrop Jersey cattle have attained a wide reputation. The town has also long been noted for its fine apple-orchards.
