The Annual Maine State Yearbook & Legislative Manual of the Various Public Officers and Businesses of every town in Maine gives us great insight into the timeline and people behind the businesses, services and government of Hartland over the course of decades.


The 1st Edition was compiled for 1859-1860 and was printed in 1860. We have concentrated our efforts on providing Hartland related pages from available earlier editions found so far which have been photographed or downloaded from the original books. Each related page has been transcribed and reformatted into a document as well as edited to provide full names and/or further details when known. The Hartland Public Library, among others, maintains a very respectable collection of numerous editions through the current year. We continue our search for missing early editions and also update these existing documents as new details are discovered.
