About the nezinscot river

The Nezinscot River is a 43-mile-long river located in the Androscoggin River watershed in Maine. It flows through the towns of Buckfield, Turner, and Leeds before joining the Androscoggin River in Turner. The river is known for its rich history, serving as a critical transportation route for the logging industry in the 19th century. Today, the river is used for recreational purposes, including fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Two significant dams, the Upper and Lower Nezinscot Dams, were built on the river in the early 1900s to provide power to local mills. While the Lower Nezinscot Dam remains operational, the Upper Nezinscot Dam was removed in 2011. The river is also used for agricultural purposes, with numerous dairy farms located along its banks. The Nezinscot River plays an essential role in the local community and serves as an important natural resource in the region.
