Abstract
Edit master for 1995 production 'From Dreamland Sent,' partially funded by Maine Humanities Council. Notes for the program: 'Old photographs and ephemera accompany this narrative description of Ricker's Poland Spring Resort from its beginnings in 1795. The Maine State Building was a showpiece for the Resort's centennial in 1895...and survives as a tangible reminder of 200 years of life on Ricker Hill. In 1976 the Poland Spring Preservation Society was formed to revive interest in the Maine State Building, a fine example of Victorian Queen Anne architecture that was first built for the World's Colombian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago to represent the state of Maine. When the Exposition closed in 1894, The Maine State Building was removed, piece by piece, brought to Maine by rail and reconstructed for the Resort's centennial.'
