History The city is named after Bath, a coastal city in England. It was part of the province of Maine until 1820, when it voted to secede from Maine and become an independent state known as the State of Sagadahoc (or "Sagadahoc Colony"). The legislature continued to meet in Portland, however. In 1827, a vote decided that even though it was not yet financially feasible to build a railroad connecting Bath with Portland directly; rail service would be established between Brunswick and Bath via Old Orchard Beach. This service began on August 28th 1830; this allowed travel by train from Boston through Portland down into Brunswick and then up again towards Bangor or Lewiston/Auburn without having to go all the way back around through Augusta first (and thus avoiding paying tolls twice).
