Welcome to Denmark, Oxford County, Maine
Denmark is a lovely small town in western Maine. It has a population of 1004 (U S Census 2000) and borders the towns of Hiram, Brownfield, Bridgton, Sebago and Fryeburg. It was incorporated in 1807. The two main routes that transect Denmark are Rte 117 and Rte 160. The main bodies of water are Moose Pond, Hancock Pond, Walden Pond and the Saco River, which forms Denmark's western border with Brownfield. Pleasant Mountain is shared with the neighboring town of Bridgton. Denmark has been (arguably) fortunate in that it has avoided the commercialization and expansion of such towns as Bridgton and Fryeburg, which lie on Rte 302 and have become thoroughfares to the mountains of New Hampshire.
