Piscataquis County
Piscataquis County was incorporated in 1838, taken from parts of adjacent Penobscot & Somerset Counties.  It is located at the geographic center of Maine.  Originally it extended north to the Canadian border, but in 1844 its northern portion was annexed by Aroostook County.  In land area, Piscataquis is one of the largest U.S. counties east of the Mississippi River.
Piscataquis is an Abenaki word meaning "branch of the river" or "at the river branch."
