History

First granted in 1771 by Colonial Governor John Wentworth, the town was named Maynesborough Plantation after Sir William Mayne, a West Indies trader. But the grantees did not take up their claims, which disappeared with the Revolution. Instead, Maynesborough was settled in 1781-1782 by William Sessions and others from Maine. Farming was the first industry. With 65 inhabitants in 1829, the New England town was reincorporated as Berlin by Thomas Wheeler, a selectman formerly of Berlin, Massachusetts.
