BDA Speaker Series: What's Old is New Again! 10/06/22 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

BDA Speaker Series: What's Old is New Again!

The BDA Speaker Series presents “What’s Old is New Again”. 

Join us for the BDA Fall Speaker Series featuring Aaron Turkel and Cleo Vauban owners and restorers of the Lemont Building. The event will take place in the newly restored Lemont Hall, originally the Knights of Pythias Hall, located on the second floor of the Lemont Block (corner of Maine and Pleasant Streets).  According to the Pejepscot History Center, this stunning room with its original dais and catwalk served as the venue for many compelling speeches and events in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Frederick Douglass spoke there during his visit to town. Chamberlain spoke there several times in his later life including as President of Bowdoin College. 

Preservation Awards will be presented to the Lemont Building, The Tontine, and the Village Improvement Association.

$20 per person. Lite refreshments available. Cash Bar. 
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Presentation begins at 5:45.

The Downtown Preservation Awards are presented annually in recognition of people and organizations that have created tangible value in the heart of the community through renovation or restoration of existing buildings or through new construction that restores and enhances the traditional streetscape. Retail, residential, and institutional buildings are eligible for consideration as are infrastructure improvements. Projects completed in the prior ten years may be nominated.
