Maine Preservation touts green projects

GRAY, Maine (AP)&nbsp- A nonprofit preservation group is emphasizing green projects as it releases its annual list of Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Resources.

Maine Preservation’ s list includes historic railroad buildings across the state, such as the Greenville Junction Depot near Moosehead Lake and the freight shed in Hallowell. The group says buildings like those could see new life as part of a cleaner Maine transportation network.

Also on the most endangered list are working waterfronts throughout the state. Maine Preservation says their loss would take away not only historic buildings and landscapes, but also the livelihoods of those who work there.

The 1,100-member Maine Preservation released its list Tuesday at the Pennell Institute in Gray, a former school and one of the 11 priorities on this year’ s list.
