Joseph Frye's land deed for Fryeburg, 1763 / Fryeburg Historical Society

<strong>Chapter 4, page 93.</strong>

A deed granting land to Joseph Frye in the town that later took his name shows one way a town could be created in Maine.

Frye received the land in recognition of his military and political service. Two years later, after the town began to take shape, Fryeburg was named a township.

The deed describes government and representation of Fryeburg. It clearly lays out land fees and the services those fees would provide.
