Called Nequasset after Nequasset lake by Abenaki Indians, it was first settled in 1638 by Edward Bateman and John Brown. They would purchase the land in 1639 from the sachem Mowhotiwormet, commonly known as Chief Robinhood, who lived near Nequasset Falls. At Day's Ferry on the Kennebec River, Richard Hammond operated a fortified trading post. His household of 16, including servants, workmen and stepchildren, conducted a lucrative fur trade with the Indians. But in the first blow of King Philip's War in the area, on the evening of August 13, 1676, warriors ingratiated themselves into the stockaded trading post, then killed the elderly Hammond and his stepson as they returned for the night. Others were either slain and scalped or taken into captivity. Buildings were looted and burned, and the cattle slain.

Nequasset was attacked during King William's War, when inhabitants were again massacred or forced to abandon their homes. It was assailed again in 1723 during Dummer's War, when the Norridgewocks and their 250 Indian allies from Canada, incited by the French missionary Sebastien Rale, burned dwellings and killed cattle. Following Governor William Dummer's peace treaty of 1725, resettlement would be slow. During the French and Indian War, on June 9, 1758, Indians raided the village, killing members of the Preble family and taking others prisoner to Quebec. This incident became known as the last conflict on the Kennebec River.

Nequasset had become a district of Georgetown, but on Octob, the plantation was set off and incorporated by the Massachusetts General Court, named after Woolwich, England.

The peninsula was heavily wooded, providing timber for shipbuilding. It also had excellent soil for agriculture. By 1858, industries included two sawmills, two gristmills and a shipyard. By 1886, the community also produced bricks and leather.

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers twice widened Upper Hell Gate on the Sasanoa River, which separates Woolwich from Arrowsic. Originally constricted by curves and ledges, which were made even more dangerous by swift currents, the half mile (0.8 kilometer) stretch was widened in 1898 to a minimum of 90 feet (27 meters), then again in 1908 to a minimum of 140 feet (40 meters) and depth of 12 feet (4 meters). The Sasanoa River now permits navigation between Bath and Boothbay Harbor.

While there is no public transportation in the area, the closest grocery is in Bath, a 7 minute drive. Quaint shopping and restaurants in town or surrounding neighborhoods of Brunswick, Freeport, Portland, Wiscasset or Boothbay Harbor.

Our stay in Day's Ferry was an exceptional experience. From the beginning Jennifer was as kind, courteous & helpful as could be expected from a host. The "little house" in Day's Ferry has incredible charm with it's period decor & delightful architectural character! From early morning sunrise to late day sunsets the views of the Kennebec River from the big picture windows or out on the 2nd story deck are New England at it's best. The property has a small point that leads to the water's edge which positively invites one to walk out to on moonlit nights to enjoy some privacy & a fine glass of wine. Day's Ferry community is very friendly & has historical appeal. The owners, Ian & Bette Ann, who live next door are warm & welcoming folks and were very accommodating in-accordance with one's particular needs. It occurred to me that there could be no more a natural fit for them in their 2nd life calling as AirBnB hosts. The Bath/Brunswick area has countless treasures for nature lovers to explore with Reid State Park being one & the extensive bike path along the Androscoggin river being another; Just a 5 minute drive from the house we had the good fortune of watching the Alewive's Spring run! We also had the pleasure of watching the bald eagle fly over the property daily, & "picking whatever flowers were in bloom" as offered to us by the owners( there are ample plantings on this large, well-kept property) to make fresh bouquets. Mostly what we enjoyed was just the feeling of making ourselves at home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this home for anyone considering a stay in mid-coast Maine.
