In the earliest days of Houlton the downtown square was called Washington Square. By the mid 1800s it became Market Square as we know it in 2020.

The Free Masons erected a statute of Washington to remind us of this history. George Washington's likeness has been seen with a stocking cap during the Christmas season, but currently he is taking the pandemic seriously by wearing a face mask.
