Inspection Station (abandoned) – Houlton ME

Description

The historic former U.S. Border Inspection Station on Border Lane off U.S. 2 in Houlton, Maine was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds. The facility was completed in 1934.

Wikipedia: “This border crossing was closed in the early 1970s when Interstate 95 was completed immediately to the north. The Canada border station, which was sometimes called Richmond Road, was demolished. The US border station remains in disrepair.”
