location and a new station built.

Can you find these pictures on the Narragansett mural?
Look along the train tracks beside the station.
Can you see the bridge where the train drove under South Street?
The Station House changed hands two or three times after the railroad was discontinued. It was used for different purposes: a garage for storage and repair of big trucks, an automobile body shop, and a warehouse for a furniture store. In 1980 it was transformed into an attractive dining room, Gorham Station and later into Sebago Brewing.
