With less than 35 square miles of land, Bangor has made quite a history for itself. Once a jewel in the East, the city was a lumber capital, being fed by such wooded communities as Orono, Milford and Old Town. It struggled and continued to prosper once the area's industry turned towards paper. A great part of downtown was destroyed in 1911 in the Great Fire. What remains of the area is part of the National Register of Historic Places. Bangor managed to keep itself "wet" for most of the Prohibition, even though Maine was the first to go "dry." The town was also a big supporter of anti-slavery movements and home to the birth of the term "Republican," employed in a speech by Israel Washburn Jr, a U.S. Congressman from Orono.
Broadway is a residential neighborhood located in Bangor, Maine. It was the residential hub of many lumber barons in the city during late 19th Century. The district reflects the early residents’ aspirations to make it the largest port in New England. Large brick double houses on the main street’s green strip are said to be the first settlements. Later on, the brick houses gave way to wooden mansions, aspirational in size and style. The district features houses built in every period since 1820 and various architectural styles.
