Main Street and Route 189, Lubec, ca. 1950

Contributed by Lubec Historical Society


Looking southwest from the belfry of the Congregational Church, the prominent road is Main Street, joined by Washington Street/State Route 189 near the center of the photograph. Slightly beyond “Flatiron Corner” on the right is Lubec High School which served from 1915 to 1976. Farther beyond, extending over the water of Johnson Bay, is the old Columbian fish packing plant. The foreground residence, once a tourist home, is gone, as it the house extreme left. The third house on the right, 2-1/2 stories with a dark roof and prominent dormers, burned during the winter of 2007-08.

Note the paucity of trees. By 2000 this view showed substantial woods surrounding Lubec and a preponderance of trees within the village.

This is #1 in a series of twelve photos from the belfry of the Congregational Church.
