Vienna (Vy-enna) a town in Kennebec County was settled in 1786 and incorporated on February 20, 1802 from portions of Goshen and Wyman's plantations. The community was named for what is now Vienna, Austria. (see History of Vienna).

Small, quiet and picturesque, Vienna is located on the northwesterly corner of Kennebec County, 22 miles northwest of Augusta the state capital and just 12 miles down Rt. 41 from Farmington the Franklin County seat.

Vienna lies within the foothills of the western Maine mountains. On a clear day McGaffey Mountain — the highest point in Kennebec County—which is located in Vienna, provides views of Mount Washington, Mount Blue, the Camden Hills and Mount Katahdin.
