Located at the head of Merrymeeting Bay on the Kennebec River, Swan island was the site of an Abenaki hunting & fishing outpost. Later, the island was claimed by colonists who founded a village in the 18th century; a village that later became known as the Town of Perkins. Perkins was once a prodigious farming community. Ice cutting, fishing & shipbuilding were among the island's many industries.
