View of Pleasant Mountain - Denmark, Maine

Denmark is a town in Oxford County, Maine, United States. The population was 1,148 at the 2010 census. A number of ponds and lakes are located within the town.

As of the census of 2010, there were 1,148 people, 479 households, and 330 families residing in the town. The population density was 24.9 inhabitants per square mile (9.6/km2). There were 1,075 housing units at an average density of 23.3 per square mile (9.0/km2). The racial makeup of the town was 98.4% White, 0.4% African American, 0.1% Native American, 0.3% Asian, 0.3% from other races, and 0.5% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.3% of the population.

The land was once part of Pequawket (now Fryeburg), village of the Sokokis Abenaki Indians. Attacked by Captain John Lovewell in 1725 during Dummer’s War, the tribe abandoned the area and fled to Canada. The township combined a grant made by the Massachusetts General Court to Fryeburg Academy, Foster’s Gore and a strip from Brownfield. Several settlers came from Andover, Massachusetts.

It was incorporated as Denmark on February 20, 1807, and named in a show of solidarity with Denmark. That country’s capital, Copenhagen, was attacked in 1801 and 1807 by the Royal Navy, which in 1775 had attacked Portland.

    Hey, I know that town. It’s close to Naples, ME, which is a major tourist trap because of the river. I wish it was next to Sweden, ME. It’s wooded, fairly quiet. I don’t live there, but it’s a nice place to visit.

    There is a small, but tradition minded Scando community in Maine.

    The Finns here kept the old ways alive. The Swedes, too.

      Very nice, it’s part of USA we don’t hear much about.
      It’s funny how we never hear anything bad about Swedish or German people around the world. We never hear ‘a German is going to prison’ for blah blah even though they are in top 4 of immigrants after Poland, Turkey and Syria (here in Denmark, Denmark).
      Germans are supposed to be the biggest ethnic group in USA.

        I’m currently reading ‘A Mighty Fortress,’ and I want to say the author wrote America has something like 55,000,000 Germans.

        Germans and Scandos are just good People, I guess.
