Named for Boston merchant Benjamin Hallowell, the City of Hallowell was first settled in the 1760s and incorporated in 1771.  The city was originally larger.  In 1797, part of Hallowell split to form a separate town that would eventually become the City of Augusta.

In its formative years, the city was home to many industries including logging, granite quarrying, and because of its location on the Kennebec River, shipbuilding.

The City of Hallowell has an active arts and restaurant scene.  Because of this, it has been nicknamed "The Little Easy" and "New Orleans On The Kennebec".
