Prior to incorporation it was the western part of the plantation of Hubbardstown; in 1789 it became the eastern part of the town of Shapleigh. The town was named for Acton, England, now a part of greater London.

Silver was discovered in 1877, followed by a decade of mining and prospecting, after which the mines were abandoned.
