Mechanics’ Hall has served as a place of comfort and inspiration in both ordinary and extraordinary times. Designed by Maine’s first architect, Thomas Sparrow, it is a vibrant monument to tradespeople, artisans, and creators; to writers and readers, musicians and dancers, and makers who have found and built a community here.
