HISTORIC FREEPORT, MAINE
Freeport was first settled in 1700 and was officially incorporated as a town in 1789. The town is named after the openness of its harbor, which is free from ice even in relatively harsh winters.
Freeport is made up of four villages: Mast Landing, Porter’s Landing, South Freeport, and Freeport Corner. These villages have a rich history of shipbuilding, fishing, canning, and farming. The Harraseeket River, which runs through the town, was once used to transport timber for use as masts, thus the name “Mast Landing.”
