Though maintaining a population of less than 1,000, Bingham is a regional commercial and employment center for northern Somerset County. The town consists of 35 square miles of primarily forested land. The town is located along U.S. 201, 23 miles north of Skowhegan. The downtown is located along the highway and bounded on the west by the Kennebec River.
Things to see and do in Bingham include:
Fishing, ATV trail riding, Snowmobile trails, hiking, fall foliage, kayaking, river rafting and bird watching (Osprey’s are common around the Kennebec River).
The boat landing is located at the end of Lander Avenue, off Route 201. Neighboring Towns also offer Baker Mountain Ski Area, Wyman Lake swimming and boating area and Benedict Arnold Trail.
First settled in 1785, the town is named after William Bingham, a Philadelphia banker and politician who at one time owned two million acres (8,000 km2) of land in Maine known as the Bingham Purchase.
The community was incorporated on February 6, 1812. By 1859, when the population was 752, Bingham had two water powered sawmills and two gristmills. It is located on the Old Canada Road (U. S. Route 201), which between 1820 until 1860 served as the primary link between Lower Canada and Maine.
Bingham became an important Maine Central Railroad loading point for pulpwood floated down the Kennebec River to Wyman Dam until environmental regulations curtailed log driving in the 1970s.
