Picataquis County was formed partly from Somerset, but more largely from Penobscot. Piscataquis was named for an Indian word meaning "river branch". Piscataquis County was incorporated as a county on March 23, 1838. Nearly six townships was set off and annexed to Aroostook County on March 12, 1844. Piscataquis County contains seventeen towns, two organized plantations and twenty-eight named, unorganized townships. Dover-Foxcroft is the county seat and shire town.
