Year of Completion: 2006.


This modest circa 1842 traditional colonial meeting house with classical revival elements is one of the more remarkable historic structures in the nation for reasons not obvious from the exterior. In the 1950s, the interior of the building was transformed by the introduction of plaster frescos on the walls and ceilings. The extensive frescos were executed by a group of artists working under the direction of the nearby Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.


In the fall of 2006, following the discovery of rotted timbers on the east wall adjacent to the central window, the South Salon Historical Society retained Mills Whitaker Architects to perform an existing conditions assessment of this historic structure. MWA is providing ongoing assistance to the South Solon Historical Society with the development of a strategy for repairs and restoration of the meeting house building envelope and its remarkable interior.
