Kezar Falls is a small village on the Ossipee River in the town of Porter in Oxford County. It was incorporated as "Porter Kezar Falls Village Corporation in the Town of Porter" by the Maine State Legislature. [1] A portion of HIram, Maine also in Oxford County was added to the Porter Kezar Falls Village Corporation in 1913 as an amendment to Chapter 217 to increase the corporate limits of the Porter Kezar Falls Village Corporation.[2]

Historically, there were two Kezar Falls Village Corporations: one at Porter and the other at Parsonsfield in York County, across the Ossipee River.[3] However, the Parsonsfield Kezar Falls Village Corporation was formally repealed by the 107th Legislature of the State of Maine and accepted at Parsonsfield Town Meeting in 1975.
