Emb­den

Emb­den is a town in Som­er­set County, incor­po­rated on June 22, 1804 from the unor­ga­nized town­ship of T1 R2.

Emb­den was also known as Emden, Queen­stown, and Wind­sor. The lat­ter two names appar­ently reflected the loy­al­ist sym­pa­thies of the early set­tlers. Accord­ing to one account, the set­tlers’ peti­tion to form a town sug­gested the name Wind­sor, though it was stricken from the pro­posal and replaced with Emden. The b was added in the early town records and became the accepted form.

Emb­den Pond, in the shadow of Dun­bar Hill, dom­i­nates the north­west por­tion of the town.

Indian & Fowl Meadow Islands, nature pre­serves in the upper Ken­nebec, are flooded reg­u­larly, giv­ing them dis­tinc­tive flora includ­ing lush ferns and wild­flow­ers in the spring. Migrant water­fowl rest here near evi­dence of old log­ging drives.
