The Town of Poland’s Community and Economic Development Committee and Board of Selectmen recently unveiled the first of three phases of interpretative signage to help visitors identify the town’s most important historical assets.
Tourism has been an important part of the town’s history for two centuries. In August of 2013, the Poland Spring Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places. One of only a handful in Androscoggin County, the district is composed of the golf course and over two dozen historical buildings, including the Maine State Building, All Souls Chapel, and former springhouse and bottling plant of Poland Spring Water.
Two other phases will be installed, including new signage for the six major entrances into town. For more information, see www.historicpolandspring.com.
