Riceville, Maine

Riceville was a tannery town that was very successful from 1898 to 1906. In 1900, there were at least 75 people, a school, and the nearest railroad station was located in Costigan. The town was abandoned some time in 1906 after the tannery burnt down, which devastated the town. No one attempted to rebuild it since everyone who lived in Riceville left after the fire.
