The Portland Water District purchased the Station at Sebago Lake from the Maine Central Railroad in 1935; this purchase included all of the lands fronting the Lake, including the wharves and other structures at the Station.

While this photo is not marked, it is believed to be a view of the side structure attached to the abandoned Sebago Lake Station as the building was being disassembled and removed.

The Maine Central Railroad decided to sell the property to the District due to a decline in railroad operations and use of its grounds for picnics and other recreational activities.
