Norway Historic District

Architectural structures

The Norway Historic District encompasses most of the historic village center of Norway, Maine, and is reflective of the town's growth over 150 years. Although significant early-to-mid 19th century buildings survive in the village, it was significantly damaged by a major fire in 1894, resulting in the construction of a number of new brick and wood frame buildings. The district, which is 44 acres (18 ha) in size, includes 64 historically significant residential, civic, social, and commercial buildings, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
