Owls Head is a town in Knox County, Maine, USA. It officially became a town on July 9, 1921.
It is generally believed the Town derived its name from sailors in 1759, who observed the tall headland of trap rock extending far into the water in the extreme northeastern end of the town and imagined that it looked like the neck and head of an owl. Some historians claim the name is of Indian origin and is expressed in their language by the word, "Mecadacut", meaning "Owl's Head".
