The village of Appleton formerly known as Packard's Mills was settled by Reuben Packard, who built mills on the western side of the stream. This village was afterward known as Smith's Mills. Burkettville is the western part of the town formerly called Burkett's Corner from one of its prominent citizens, Mr. Andrew Burkett, who built two mills on the Medomak River. Mr. Burkett was prominent in town affairs, representative to legislature, etc. The town was named in honor of a wealthy merchant of Boston, who gave a bell which is in the steeple of the Baptist church.
