Come with us to learn about the 3 museums at the Poland Springs Resort.

1. The Maine State Building was built for the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. At the end of the fair the Ricker family of Poland Spring bought the building, took it down piece by piece, put it on a 16-car freight train and brought it to Poland Spring! 
 
2. The 1912 All Souls Chapel is made of Maine granite, quartered sawn oak and a floor of inlaid mosaic of beautiful and expensive design. You’ll be amazed at the hand painted windows.
 
3. The original bottling facility and spring house is now the Poland Spring Bottling Museum. Through scientific displays and vintage memorabilia, the museum offers a close up look at one of Maine’s oldest industries.
 
We can find lunch at Mel's Hilltop Restaurant on the property  (on your own), or bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy a picnic on the grounds.  We will make a visit the gift shop before heading home.
