The village was founded in 1852, then called Noble's Corner. The name was changed in 1900 in honor of the plentiful maple trees in the area.
Today, Maple is a tiny, barely recognized place, notable for its historic church and maple trees.

Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook: I was born here in 1879, in the St. Andrew's Church. I was the fifth of ten children. My father was a reverend and my mother was the daughter of a prosperous local shopkeeper. When I was a year old, in 1880, my family moved to a suburb of Miramichi. Later in my life, after I had made my fortunes, I gave a large set of bells to the church I was born in.
