Barnard is an extinct town, and extinct plantation, now an unorganized territory (township) in the Northeast Piscataquis townships in Piscataquis County, Maine. The town was created from a portion of Williamsburg in 1834. The town's incorporation was surrendered and its status was changed to unorganized territory in 1877.[1] Later, this Barnard Township was organized into a plantation in 1895.[2] The plantation organization was repealed in 1982, and since then it has been unorganized territory.[3] [4]
