mystery photo


Yes!
Contrary to popular belief, spring is on the way.
Along with the milder season, more ghost streets will appear, too!
But for now, here is a mysterious Maine building for you to identify. This was built in 1830 and still stands.


What is this, and where is it??

I think that I've seen this building but cannot recall where. Is it currently occupied?

I believe it is the Maine State House built in 1832

Is it not the Maine state house?

No cigar- not yet!

And yes, Stan, the building is still in use.

Here's a hint: it's not in the Portland area!

Looks like the Kennebec County Courthouse to me. :-)

And I should have also said it is located in Augusta. :-)

That's IT !
This is a picture of the Kennebec County Courthouse, in Augusta, taken between 1937-1940.

Strange Maine readers are SO sharp!
