Samuel Dutton held a major interest in the original township, T1 R3 NWP. He later became a Judge of Probate, a founder of Bangor Theological Seminary, and an agent for others owning land in the county.
According to Chadbourne, the current name comes from the Scottish glen, a narrow valley, and burn, a small stream in a narrow valley – Kenduskeag Stream.
The town is becoming a major suburb of the Bangor area with population expanding nearly four-fold in the 40 years 1970-2010, and growing at a rate of 16 percent 2000-2010. Glenburn’s school contains the public library as well.
The boot-shaped town is served by the extension of Bangor’s Broadway, Route 15 leading to Kenduskeag, and Route 221 to Hudson. Following the Pushaw Road north from Bangor, one find access to Glenburn’s substantial frontage on Pushaw Lake at the villages of Sandy Beach and Lakeside Landing.
