CHESTERVILLE — The efforts of Chesterville Heritage Society members and volunteers is turning a former fire station in Chesterville Center into a place to collect, preserve and present the town’s heritage for the community. The building was given to the Heritage Society when the town’s two fire departments combined, secretary Cindy Whittier said. The group has held public suppers and raised funds for several years for the building renovation. The two-story structure dates back to 1961, according to writing on the cement floor. Renovations include a new roof that was finished last week, and cleaning, painting and testing the original fire whistle on the roof. (read more at the Lewiston Sun Journal)
