Throwback Thursday

This photo should look pretty familiar to those who grew up in the area. Can you guess what this building is now? What approximate date the photo was taken? Any memories of Grant’s? Please share!

We couldn’t have known when we posted last week’s Throwback Thursday photo that such a somber focus would be on the town of Hope this week (and all of you are in our thoughts), but those who guessed this building became Hope General Store were indeed, correct.

This week’s photo is courtesy of the Rockland, Maine History Facebook page submitted by David Feyler.
