DescriptionCabot was named in honor of settler Major Lyman Hitchcock's bride, Miss Cabot of Connecticut. The first settlement in the area was on Cabot Plains, also known as Bayley-Hazen Road.
Cabot was the birthplace of Zerah Colburn, a mathematical genius who, before he could read or write, could multiply two six-digit numbers in his head, calculating the correct answer in seconds. Born in 1804, Colburn was hailed as a boy wonder throughout America and Europe. He later became a teacher and clergyman at Norwich University.
