Neal Dow Memorial

Neal Dow Memorial Review

The mansion, once a stop on the Underground Railroad, was the home of Civil War general Neal Dow, who became known as the "Father of Prohibition." He was responsible for Maine's adoption of the anti-alcohol bill in 1851, which spurred a national movement. Now a museum, this majestic 1829 Federal-style home is open for guided tours that start on the hour.
