Day 7 – Meisch Building in Historic Sanford
Walking down First Street here’s another one of Sanford’s beautiful historic buildings. Even though the letters say 1922, the building was actually built in 1923. With the green ornaments in the brick it has a little bit of a Spanish touch to it. But just a little bit.
Here is some information I found online:
Designed by W.B. Talley and constructed by R.J. Gillespie for the Sanford Investment Co., John Meisch, President. The facade has not been significantly altered since construction. The building is built of reinforced concrete faced with tapestry brick, Arnold ornamental stone, and stucco. The windows are copper trimmed with a Vermont marble base. Red and white decorative terracotta mission tile is on the facade parapet.
