[LUD-low] is a town in Aroostook County, incorporated on March 21, 1864 from Belfast Academy Grant Plantation, itself organized in 1840.
General John Cummings, agent for the trustees of Belfast Academy and probably the first white settler, arrived on October 8, 1826.
In the 1880’s Ludlow had two sawmills in operation. Its primary economic activity was in farming: mostly oats, wheat, and potatoes.
Ludlow is an agricultural community in the heart of southern Aroostook potato county. The soybean field above is an example of the continuous, historic attempts to diversify the county’s farm economy.
The town office is located in an old schoolhouse, which also has housed the Head Start program.
