Sign: "Town Line, Herseytown TWP" on Route 11 (2012)Herseytown Township should not be confused with the town of Hersey about 25 miles north on Route 11.

Most travelers see the township from the scenic view on I-95 in Benedicta. The attraction is a view of Mount Katahdin over Rush Pond in Heseytown.

Davidson, the only village in the township, is in the north at Davidson Pond on the Davidson Road off Route 11.

Other than Route 11 and I-95, there are no improved roads, with the exception of about one-half mile of the Casey Road near Rush Pond.

As one might expect, the township is sparsely populated, rural, and dependent on agriculture and forest products for employment.

A short canoe trip from Herseytown Township to adjoining Soldiertown Township on Mud Brook is an easy paddle to its confluence with the Penobscot River East Branch. The launch site pictured below is completely unofficial, but accessible during the high water of April 2014.
