When you consider its land mass, that is! Ellsworth encompasses 93.8 square miles. It was named for Oliver Ellsworth, a delegate to the 1787 Constitutional Convention.
On the quieter side is the quaint village of Surry, with a population of less than 1,500. According to The Names of Maine, the town fathers wanted a short name, and so it was named for Surrey, England, but the “e” was dropped to shorten it further. Surry has had a long tradition of being a boat building town.
