Here are a few facts about Acton:

Acton is a town in York County, incorporated on March 6, 1830; it ceded land to Shapleigh in 1831. It was part of a much larger tract of land in purchased in 1661 by Francis Small from Chief Sunday of the Newichawannock Tribe.

Settled in 1776, the town's first mill, a grist mill, was built on the Salmon Falls River in 1779 by Joseph Parsons.

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.
