This Union Street building is pictured in 1958.

We told you this was a hard one. The building you’re looking at is the former Hannibal Hamlin Grammar School — a school akin to a combination elementary and middle school today — that was located at the corner of Union and Third streets.

In 1959, the school was torn down, and a supermarket was built in its place — the former Doug’s Shop n’ Save, which itself closed in the 1990s. That shopping center is presently home to Japanese restaurant Ichiban, Wilcox Fitness and Gold Star Cleaners.
