Union Bridge Inspection Station (former) – Calais ME

Description

The historic former U.S. Border Inspection Station at since-demolished Union Bridge in Calais, Maine was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds. The facility, located by the river on Todd Street, was completed in January 1939. The facility, since altered, was sold in 1962. Living New Deal is unsure of the building’s present status, though satellite imagery suggests that the building still stands, heavily altered.
