Leeds

PO Box 206, Leeds, ME 04263

Originally Littleborough plantation named after Moses Little, one of its largest proprietors, Leeds changed its name to honor Leeds, England, where the original settlers’ family was from. It is home of the late Major General Oliver Howard, and a monument was erected in his name to remember the Civil War veterans from Leeds. The trail to reach the monument is open to the public and is about a half-mile walk to the top of what is known as Monument Hill. Located on the North Road, the trail is busiest in autumn when the journey up, and view at the top, is breathtaking with fall colors.
