A view of the old Fish Hatchery on Outer Sweden Street in Caribou that was built in 1895.

The Fish Hatchery was started in 1892 in a small space over Lloyd Briggs' shed; 25,000 salmon were hatched in the first year.

In 1893 the hatchery was moved to a location under S.L. White's Drug Store.

In 1895 it was moved to the pictured location on outer Sweden Street and taken over by the state of Maine. In 1905 it was moved to a location near the mouth of Otter Brook.
