Maine: Why Not Buy an Old Stone Jail?
Anyone looking for security should check out the place just listed by Dawson Commercial Realty in Bangor, Maine.
It’s a roomy, brick and stone county jail in the middle of Skowhegan. Constructed in 1897, the 14,000 square-foot building is for sale for $200,000 and comes complete with razor-wire fencing. There are no zoning or permit-use restrictions, but Philip Roy, chairman of the Somerset County Commission, says only buyers with profit in mind should apply.
“I’d like to have it go back on the tax rolls of Skowhegan, and I’d also like to see it create jobs – ultimately, that’s what we’re looking for,” he says.
