BANGOR, Maine — The town of Pittsfield had an air raid siren installed in the town at the start of World War II in case the Germans would attack.
The dust covered siren is now on display at the Maine Air Museum at 98 Maine Avenue next to the runway at Bangor International Airport, just north of where Hammond Street meets the runway.
You can see Pittsfields’ siren from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays during the summer months. Admission is $1 for children and $2 for adults with a maximum of $5 for a family of any size. Active duty military and their families are admitted free of charge. There is no charge for pre-arranged group tours.
