The Maine Preservation Executive Board recently voted to include the Bath Freight Shed as a positive example on Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Resources list of 2012.  While they recognized the building was far from being endangered citing the Bath Freight Shed Alliance’s careful work, they included it to showcase the property as an excellent model for adaptive reuse of a historic railway freight shed.  Their hope that its inclusion on this annual list will garner the support and attention the property deserves to further its preservation.
