Deering was a city in Cumberland County, Maine which existed from 1871 to 1899. Until 1871, the town was part of Saccarappa, which also included what is now neighboring Westbrook. In that year, the towns split with little opposition. The 1880 United States Census counted 4,324 residents of the newly formed town.[2] In 1892, Deering was incorporated as a city.[3] In 1899, Deering was annexed by Portland, becoming the northern neighborhoods of the city.[4]
