Walker Memorial Library, Westbrook, Maine

[LIB6645] - The Walker Memorial Library was placed on the National Register of Historical Places on November 10, 1980 and was registered as a Greater Portland Landmark in 1994. The Library now houses a Local History Room and a Gathering room in the original part of the library where the beauty and planning of the original designers is still evident. The Walker Memorial Library has remained a jewel in the downtown area of Westbrook for 116 years; its beauty unsurpassed in any other building in the City. We now face the possibility of losing this building…is this what the citizens want? Visit The Westbrook Historical Society webpage! A classic image from Zazzle's extensive collection of over 3,200 panoramic photographs, depicting iconic scenes from all fifty states. This commemorative poster print features a reproduction of an original panoramic photograph of the Westbrook Seminary in Portland, Maine, taken in 1906.
