Welcome to Denmark, Maine!
The Town provides general governmental services for the area within its boundaries, including emergency services, assessing, code enforcement, solid waste disposal, maintenance of highways, dams, streets, parks, recreation and municipal waterfront areas.
Naming of Denmark
Residents of Denmark had selected several names for their new town before travelling to the legislative session to incorporate the town. These names were not recorded and have been lost to time. When the delegation attended the incorporation ceremony in the legislature, the governor selected the town’s name as Denmark.
Over time speculation has risen over the origin of the name Denmark. Denmark is not a Danish community. There are several other communities in Maine that are named after cities and countries from other regions in the world. It is not known whether or not the town was named with these other communities in mind. At present, members of the community and state government cannot agree on why the name Denmark was chosen.
