Eastern Maine Medical Center Graystone Building 2003

Contributed by Eastern Maine Medical Center


The Mace building (now known as the Graystone Building at Eastern Maine Medical Center) was built in Bangor on 2.5 acres on State Street in 1861 by the Mace family and was later sold to the Stern Family. Bangor General Hospital purchased the house in 1894 for $8,000 when their lease was close to running out. It was in this building that Bangor General Hospital and Nurses School was founded in 1892. They received their first patient June 7, 1892 and was incorporated December 16, 1892. In 1897 it became Eastern Maine General Hospital which is now Eastern Maine Medical Center and a member of Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems. The Graystone Building is pictured here with a portion of the Riverside Inn in 2003 and is still functioning as part of the hospital.
