Rangeley is a town on the west central side of Franklin County (also known as Number 3 R2 Plantation). A place called Rangeley Plantation was first organized in 1840, but by 1845 it was part of a multi-township plantation called Plantations 2 and 3 R1 and 2 and 3 R2 formed from:

but that long name was changed to Dallas Plantation in 1845, and changed back to Rangeley Plantation in 1852. In 1855 the Town of Rangeley (T3 R2) was set off from a portion of that plantation, and that town continues to today. The large multi-township plantations were abolished in 1859, and left-over Rangeley Plantation was split into its three remaining parts, including the modern, smaller Rangeley Plantation (T3 R1).[1] [2] [3]
