A Rich History...

We are located in Augusta's Historic Riverfront District. Like many communities throughout our great country, we are blessed with a water gateway to the world. Explorers visited these banks of the Kennebec as early as 1607. Captain James Howard, who was the commander of Old Fort Western, became the first permanent settler. "The Fort" as it was called at the time, became a key frontier trading post and later an inland port. It is now know as Old Fort Western, the oldest wooden fort in the Northeast. Augusta grew up around the fort and became incorporated in 1797, Augusta grew with the help of its manufacturing and publishing businesses. Our building was built in 1903 as a warehouse that stored paper, magazines and catalogs. These items were manufactured and printed here in Maine and shipped through the beautiful granite Augusta Post Office (the Old Federal Building across the street), and down the Kennebec River to their world wide destinations. Our rich history is exemplified in the incredible architecture of our the buildings here on Water Street.
