Greenfield is an extinct plantation and town, now an unorganized territory (township) in the East Central Penobscot townships in Penobscot County, Maine. Greenfield was first settled in 1812.[1] The plantation was organized from Township 38 North of Bingham's Penobscot Purchase (T 38 NBPP).[2] The town was created from Greenfield Plantation in 1834.[3] The town's incorporation was repealed in 1993, and since then it has been unorganized territory.[4]
