Madi­son

Madi­son is a town in Som­er­set County, incor­po­rated March 7, 1804. In 1846 it ceded land to Norridgewock.

Father Sebas­t­ian Rasle arrived in 1695 in the Old Point area, liv­ing with and min­is­ter­ing to the Indi­ans there until he was killed by the British in 1724. He built the first church in the town.

Named for Pres­i­dent James Madi­son, it was sur­veyed in 1791 and per­ma­nent white set­tlers arrived at least be 1775.
