Main Street, Farmington, ca. 1925

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

As the shire town for Franklin County, Farmington has been a center for the courts, commerce, and education, with its campus of the University of Maine System.

In 1886 a devastating fire swept through the center of the community, destroying business buildings, churches, and homes. These substantial brick commercial blocks at the corner of Main Street and Broadway were erected in the Italianate, Romanesque Revival, and Queen Anne styles during the period immediately following the fire.
