Mark Lee, an Associate and Architectural Designer with Harriman, will present at the Androscoggin Historical Society (AHS) March 23rd meeting.
Lee, who has been with the full-service architecture and engineering design firm for nearly 14 years, will give a presentation titled “Harriman, Architects and Engineers: Its Architectural Legacy in Androscoggin County.” Celebrating its 140th year, the firm was established in Lewiston in 1870, and has a rich architectural history in Androscoggin County.
Most notable projects include the Dingley School at the corner of Oak and Bates Street in Lewiston, the Kora Temple Shrine on Main Street in Lewiston, and the Washburn and Chamberlain Schools in Auburn to name a few. Lee’s presentation will discuss a history of the firm’s regional work and compare it to historic trends in architecture.
Other AHS upcoming meetings include “150 Years for Methodists and Court Street Baptists in Auburn,” by Betty Dexter and Douglas Hodgkin on April 27th; and “Gettysburg’s Lost Battle: Civilian Struggle in 1863,” by Prof. Margaret Creighton on May 25th.
