Davenport Memorial Building in Bath, Maine

As part of our weekly building history series, today we take a look at the Davenport Memorial Building in Bath, Maine:

“The land and partial funding for the Bath City Hall were bequeathed by George P. Davenport as a memorial to his father, Charles Davenport.  Designed by Boston architect Charles G. Loring, the building was completed in 1929.  The belfry contains a Revere bell, cast in 1802, which has hung in two Bath churches and the previous Town Hall.”

Also, we are constantly on the look-out for new building histories to add to our picture galleries.  If you know of a town the features building historical markers, in the real-world or virtually, please let us know.  You can leave a comment on this post or contact us via the contact page.  Thanks!
