Riceville was a small village in Hancock County, Maine. The village was established by the Shaw brothers who had set up a tannery in the area in 1879.

Their company was sold in the 1880's to Buzzell and Rice. That's when the village flourished with housing and amenities. In 1906, the tannery burned down and then the post office was disincorporated. By, 1910 Riceville was a ghost town.
