LANCASTER HOUSE
38 Harpswell Road, Brunswick.

Lancaster House located at 38 Harpswell Road, Brunswick, is a former Bowdoin College fraternity house which has been vacant for over a decade. Bowdoin College determined it had no historical significance and unfit for renovation. Some architectural artifacts were salvaged as well as bricks from the fireplace and hearth. Bricks were given to numerous Alpha Kappa Sigma alumni and more are still available. Building was demolished, hauled off and grounds restored for undetermined future use.

Demolition and restoration of 78 Federal Street and 22 Cleaveland Street, Bowdoin College
Bowdoin College took ownership in 2007 when building was in a state of disrepair and tried to stabilize the building as well as removing a few of the collapsing chimneys. The Maine Historic Preservation Society agreed with Bowdoin as to the level of disrepair and requested the College pay homage to the buildings in their future plans. As you can see here, the foundation is outlined with granite from the original foundation and there is an etched slab approximately where each entry door was located.  78 Federal Street built 1865.  22 Cleaveland Street built 1836.
