Vienna (Vy-enna) a town in Kennebec County was settled in 1786 and incorporated on February 20, 1802 from portions of Goshen and Wyman's plantations. The community was named for what is now Vienna, Austria. (see History of Vienna).
Small, quiet and picturesque, Vienna is located on the northwesterly corner of Kennebec County, 22 miles northwest of Augusta the state capital and just 12 miles down Rt. 41 from Farmington the Franklin County seat.
Vienna lies within the foothills of the western Maine mountains. On a clear day McGaffey Mountain — the highest point in Kennebec County—which is located in Vienna, provides views of Mount Washington, Mount Blue, the Camden Hills and Mount Katahdin.

There will be a volunteer outside of the Vienna Community Room/Firehouse on Election Day, Nov. 3, collecting signatures for a new petition drive to put a peoples’ referendum on the proposed CMP Corridor on the ballot in 2021.
Even if you have already voted this year, please stop by if you want to sign the petition!
Beverly Harpine said that Pincushion Island on the northerly end of Flying Pond is for sale. It lies opposite her shoreline property. She asked what is permissible on the island. Waine has received an inquiry about putting a houseboat or a dock in. Richard Flewelling at MMA said we have no existing prohibition against houseboats. He said the Town could pass an ordinance in this regard.
