Alger Hall, the meeting place of the Good Templars temperance society in Scarborough, around 1925.

"The prohibition society [the Good Templars] was strong in Maine. The Templars' national leader, Neal Dow, was a Portland native. In Scarborough, the Templars' erected a meeting hall in Dunstan Village. It was located where the Soldiers Monument now stands. Eventually the building was moved further south on Route 1. Today, it is the Governor William King Lodge of the Masons."
