Fifth Maine Regiment Community Center

Description:

The Fifth Maine Regiment Memorial Hall, located in Peaks Island, Maine, was built in 1888 by veterans of the Fifth Maine Volunteer Regiment. It is a two-story building, constructed in the Queen Anne style and it is a combination of a communal centre with a commemorative space. The building served as a memorial and reunion space for Civil War veterans and their descendants, with the last reunion held there being in 1940. In 1956, the building was given to the community of the island by the veterans’ descendants and has been used as a museum since then.
