Bangor Maine History

Over 100 years ago, in 1913, Maine state legislature created the Bangor Public Library, a public library in the heart of the historic district. Maine's first public libraries and the state's oldest library have been open annually for more than 150 years.

In 1906-07, Union Station was completed and helped make Bangor one of the largest cities in the United States with more than 1,000 inhabitants. Local capitalists also invested in Aroostook County, Maine's second-largest county, and developed the area for settlement.

In 1974, most of the country was ceded to Massachusetts, which Maine belonged to until 1820, i.e. 1833. The county, founded in 1760 from York, is still under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts, according to records that apparently were not microfilmed, but the original documents are in the Massachusetts State Archives and have been published in a series of essays by the Maine State Library of Maine's Historical Society. For more information about the history of Aroostook County, Maine, and its history, see the Portland Press Herald and Bangor Daily News, as well as the state's website and its annual history report, both in Maine and Massachusetts.

In 1913, Milton R. Geary graduated from the University of Maine and opened a law firm in Bangor. He was the man who would leave sunny Virginia, come to Maine and take over a struggling church at the age of 69. They were rebuilt in 1912 on Harlow Street next to each other and in 1913 in the same building.

He understood that Providence, John Paul Jones's first command, was in Bangor and was exploring the place to discover its docks. As a student, he first discovered the location of the ship and formed a partnership with his father - law professor John F. Jones at the University of Maine. He was also an expert in the history of shipbuilding and also in the port of Bangor and shipbuilding.

The 1st Heavy Artillery Regiment of Maine, based in Bangor and commanded by a local merchant, lost more men than any other Union regiment. In 1887, fresh water caused the Maine Central Railroad Company's tracks between Bangors and Vanceboro to be covered at a depth of several meters. The ice in the river formed, causing the water to rise 10 to 12 feet above normal high tide. It was close enough to the coast to affect the tides and cause flooding and deaths for many soldiers.
