Main Street, Rockland, ca. 1920

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

The Victorian brick commercial buildings on Main Street in Rockland are largely the result of fires in 1853 that leveled much of the downtown.

A year later, as the business district was being reconstructed, Rockland incorporated as a city.

At left is the Security Trust Building, a Georgian Revival bank built in 1912 from designs by R. Clipston Sturgis of Boston.
