Eddington is a town located on the eastern side of the Penobscot River in Penobscot County, Maine, United States.
The town was founded by and named after Jonathan Eddy, a militia captain in the French and Indian War, a colonel in the American Revolutionary War, and the first magistrate in the are. Eddy and most of the town's other original settlers migrated to the town from Nova Scotia, where they had supported the rebel cause against the majority British Loyalist population. Eddy tried to make Nova Scotia - the 14th American colony - join the revolution by leading the Siege of Fort Cumberland. After the siege failed, Eddy and others emigrated to the District of Maine and were given land grants in present-day Eddington.
According to the US census, the town has a total area of 26.5 square miles, of which, 25.1 square miles is land and 1.4 square miles is water. The total area is 5.32% water.
As of the 2000 census, there were 2,052 people, 825 households, and 595 families residing in the town. The population density was 81.7 people per square mile. There were 920 housing units at an average density of 36.6 per square mile.
