Brief History: The town was chartered in October of 1761 by Benning Wentworth. It is named after Maidstone, England. The grantees were men from Connecticut, who never lived in the town, which proved to be an obstacle for anyone who wanted to purchase land. Maidstone was known for its productive agricultural land along the Connecticut River, as well as lumber production.
General Area Info: The town is bordered by the Connecticut River with the Janice Peaslee Bridge connecting Maidstone to Stratford, New Hampshire. Maidstone Lake, a glacially formed, deep, clear lake is located on the western side of town. The lake and surrounding area were designated as a state forest and park in 1938.
