In 1763 Jonathan Buck settled the area, which was subesequently burned during the Revolutionary War. First incorporated as "Buckstown", the name was changed to "Bucksport" in 1817. In the 1800's Bucksport thrived as an international port. Later industrial activity grew and a foundry, then a tannery stood on the site where in 1929 the Seaboard paper mill was built. Today Bucksport boasts a beautiful waterfront location and a variety of industrial and commercial activities.
