Brick Store Museum
Brick Store Museum Review
The cornerstone of this block-long preservation of early-19th-century commercial and residential buildings is William Lord's Brick Store. Built as a dry-goods store in 1825 in the Federal style, the building has an openwork balustrade across the roof line, granite lintels over the windows, and paired chimneys. Exhibits chronicle the Kennebunk area's history and early American decorative and fine arts. The museum leads architectural walking tours of Kennebunk's National Historic District by appointment from late May through September. You can also purchase a $4.95 map that marks historic buildings or a $15.95 guidebook, Windows on the Past.
