Please donate to the Poland Spring Preservation Society and help us save this two very important buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
The All Souls Chapel was built in 1912 for the guests and staff of Poland Spring Resort. The granite chapel with slate roof and copper accents was designed by Boston area architect G. Henri Desmond. When the chapel was opened, it was opened as an interdenominational place of worship for use by Catholics and Protestants. Guests contributed much of the interior furnishings and all of the memorial hand-painted windows. The Chapel has hosted countless weddings, concerts, and memorials in the last 107 years. Current estimated repairs needed! $350,000.
The Maine State Building was built in 1893 for the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. After the Expo, the Ricker family purchased the building, dismantled it, shipped it to Poland Spring, and rebuilt it where it has stood for the last 125 years! Currently the Maine State Building features an art gallery, home of the Maine Golf Hall of Fame, and contains a gift shop and a wonderful museum filled with memorabilia highlighting Poland Spring’s heritage. Current estimated repairs needed! $150,000.
