Dallas Plantation (T2 R2 WBKP), also known as Number 2 R2 Plantation, and also known as Getchell Plantation, is a Maine plantation in the forests on the west central side of Franklin County. Early, it was part of a multi-township plantation called Plantations 2 and 3 R1 and 2 and 3 R2 formed from:

  • Township 2 R1 WBKP (now Sandy River Plantation)
  • Township 3 R1 WBKP (now Rangeley Plantation)
  • Number 2 R2 WBKP Plantation (now Dallas Plantation)
  • Number 3 R2 WBKP Plantation (now Rangeley)

but that long name was changed to Dallas Plantation in 1845, and changed in turn to Rangeley Plantation in 1852. Multi-township plantations were abolished in 1859. By 1860 Number 2 R2 was known as Getchell Plantation, and by 1870 the same land was being called Dallas Plantation again. In 1884 Number 2 R2 was once again reorganized as Dallas Plantation.[1] [2]
