New Portland is a town in Somerset County, Maine. It is perhaps best known for its Wire Bridge, a cable suspension bridge completed in 1866 that is the last remaining bridge of its type in Maine, and possibly the U.S. Much of North New Portland's Main Street burned to the ground in the fire of 1919, including a hotel.

The town was given to the residents of Falmouth (now Portland) by the Massachusetts legislature to repay them for their loss when the British fleet burned Falmouth in 1775.

According to the US census, the town has a total area of 43.8 square miles, of which 43.4 square miles is land and 0.3 square miles (0.80%) is water. The town is situated on Route 27 adjacent to Kingfield and a short drive to the popular Sugarloaf ski resort. The Carrabassett River flows through the West New Portland village and East New Portland village, whereas the Gilman Stream flows through the North New Portland village.

As of the 2000 census , there were 785 people, 329 households, and 227 families residing in the town. The population density was 18.1 people per square mile. There were 564 housing units at an average density of 13.0 per square mile.
