It was incorporated on January 24, 1833 from the township T25 ED and a portion of T26 ED. Wesley is located on the historic Airline Stage Road, Maine Route 9.
While an agricultural town in the late 19th century, Wesley had a shingle mill producing 10,000 shingles per day.
Fishing and camping is available at Seavey Lake, Little Seavey Lake and the western shore of Long Lake.
A subdivision accessible by gravel roads exists at the 111-acre Little Seavey Lake off Route 192 about a mile south of Wesley Village.
Blueberry production is a major industry in this Washington County town.
The Jasper Wyman company is the primary employer and owner of the blueberry barrens in the area.
Maine Routes 9 and 192 pass through this sparsely populated, heavily forested area.
