Bradford is a town in Penobscot County, Maine, United States. It is part of the Bangor, Maine Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 1,186 at the 2000 census.

History

Bradford was first settled 1803-05 by James White and Robert Marshall of Thomaston, Maine. It became a plantation in 1820 and a town in 1831. By the mid-1850s its population had peaked at 1,500, which is about 300 more people than it has today.

A tornado passed through Bradford in 1872, destroying two houses. Buildings in Parkman, Maine and Dover, Maine were also demolished. [http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=9E06E7D71330EF34BC4C52DFB0668389669FDE A Storm in Maine]
