The Brownfield Grant is COMPLETED! The Columbian Factory behind our building is now demolished and cleared away. The transformation to the area is amazing and community members have shared how wonderful it looks. Below are some pictures of the process that started last October 2016.

Columbian Factory before demolition
A very special Thank You to all our dedicated members who volunteered their time and talent to build our new addition. The new room houses the Town's Cannon & Watering Trough, the Channel Light Bell (aka Spark Plug), the Gold from Seawater display and other artifacts pertinent to Lubec's history
The factory is gone, cleared away, as if it never existed only the memories of those who once
worked at the Columbian remain
