The Seminary Building, Westbrook Seminary, 1868
Contributed by Abplanalp Library, UNE
When Westbrook Seminary opened in 1834, its only building was this painted brick structure holding classrooms and adorned with the tower removed from the recently remodeled Portland City Hall. Known only as the Seminary Building, it was built at a cost of $7,000 and described in the "Christian Intelligencer" as a "handsome building, set on an open plain, with a grove of pines to the rear and with classroom accomodations for 124 scholars."
This is an 1868 photograph by Augustus H. Folsom.
