Enfield is a town in Penobscot County,
Maine, United States. The population was 1,616 at the 2000 census. However, there is a large seasonal population with many cottages located on Cold Stream Pond, a lake within the town.

Mainethe largest city in the area. There are several small stores scattered throughout town such as: The Nutters Market, Thompson's Hardware, Enfield General Store, King Bros., and several others. Enfield also houses the only medical clinic within an approximately 12 miles radius (Cold Stream Clinic), which is a part of the Health Access Network.
Enfield was first settled about 1820, and was originally called "Cold Stream." It was incorporated on January 31, 1835.
In 1891, four armed men boarded and attempted to rob a train as it passed through Enfield, shooting at the engineer, fireman, and conductors. They also shot up the train station. They failed in their attempt to break into the mail-car, but it was a dark night and they escaped capture.
