In 1868, plans to construct the Maine General Hospital were drafted. The hospital would be built on the site of the state arsenal on Bramhall Hill. Portland citizens raised $100,000 from sales and donations to construct it.

By 1874 the Maine General Hospital began accepting patients. Today, Maine Medical Center is the biggest tertiary care hospital in Northern New England, serving all of Maine and parts of Vermont and New Hampshire.
