Kingman is an extinct plantation and town, now an unorganized territory (township) in the East Central Penobscot townships in Penobscot County, Maine. The town was created from McCrillis Plantation and/or Independence Plantation in 1873. The town's incorporation was surrendered and its status was changed to a plantation in 1935.[1] Kingman's plantation organization was repealed in 1945, and since then it has been unorganized territory.[2]
