Maine Highlands Senior Center - Dover-Foxcroft, Maine
In 1880 discussions began as the town realized the necessity of a new auditorium. This was brought about because of the added population in town and outgrowing their current space. The town, strategically situated as it was, was a terrific crossroads of connections to the rest of the beautiful state of Maine. With its location on the railroad it not only serviced wood cutters, manufacturers, and the like, it became a hub for Christian revival meetings, with thousands of Christians traveling to Dover-Foxcroft via train for week long meetings filled with the teaching of God's word, worship, and prayer. Quickly becoming a hub of activity and growth, the building known as Central Hall was realized. Fast-forward to the 21st century and you have,a still architecturally beautiful building, but in need of major repair. Thus the idea of the Maine Highlands Senior Center.
We have completed the first phase of this projects electrical service which included: a rewire rough-in, the addition of interconnected fire alarm service and a service update from a 200 Amp service to a 400 Amp (split 200 Amp) for the Dover-Foxcroft Historical Society's renovation project converting the old Central Hall into the new Maine Highlands Senior Center.
We are now in phase two of this exciting project. We are glad that we are able to be to serve our community here, in central Maine, taking a part of living history and reviving it for future use.
