About The Book:
The town of Arrowsic is located in Sagadahoc County on an island at the confluence of the Kennebec and the Sasanoa Rivers and was called Arrowseag by the native American Abenaki tribe. The region was settled early after being purchased from the sachem Mowhotiwormet, commonly
known as Chief Robinhood. During the French and Indian Wars, settlers were forced to abandon the area at different times until peace was later restored around 1763.

Arrowsic originally was included in the area which encompassed the town of Georgetown. Over the years Georgetown included other regions which later were set off to form their own towns. Arrowsic was the final town to be set off and was incorporated as the 352nd town in Maine on 17
February 1841. The region was within the jurisdiction of Lincoln County until Sagadahoc County was set off and incorporated on 4 April 1854.
