Town Hall – Berwick ME

Description

“A bequest of securities was made to the town which was intended to provide funds for the building. Due to a decrease in the value of these securities it was necessary to obtain P.W.A. aid, and even with this aid a smaller building was constructed than the one originally contemplated.

The over-all dimensions of the building are 117 by 77 feet and it is two stories high with a basement. It houses all of the town offices, the fire department, a library, an auditorium, a kitchen, and a social room.

It has a steel frame, concrete floors, and wood roof. The exterior walls are brick with wood trim and the cupola is wood. It was completed in January 1939 at a construction cost of $67,557 and a project cost of $85,385.”
