[NOX] is a town in Waldo County, incorporated on February 12, 1819 from Knox Plantation. It annexed land from Thorndike and Montville in 1831 and 1833 respectively. It was named for Revolutionary War General and Commander of Artillery Henry Knox. Knox owned the Waldo Patent, a large tract of the land in the area.
In the southwest corner the Frye Mountain Wildlife Management Area continues over the town line with adjoining Montville.
The town, a small but steadily growing community, lies northwest of Belfast on Maine Route 137. The Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad passes through its northern tip.
