Main Street, Fairfield, ca. 1925

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


The frame Victorian commercial blocks lining Fairfield’s Main Street in the 1920s gave the downtown the look of a western movie set.

At left, the white marquee marks the entrance to the Star Theater, an early moving picture theater.

Other businesses include a bakery, a pool hall, a pharmacy, and an electrical appliance store.

Fairfield’s location on the Kennebec River supplied water power for such industries as textiles, furniture, lumber, and paper.
