The frame Victorian commercial blocks lining Fairfield’s Main Street in the 1920s gave the downtown the look of a western movie set.
At left, the white marquee marks the entrance to the Star Theater, an early moving picture theater.
Other businesses include a bakery, a pool hall, a pharmacy, and an electrical appliance store.
Fairfield’s location on the Kennebec River supplied water power for such industries as textiles, furniture, lumber, and paper.
