Hall of Agriculture
1908–1909, William H. Taylor. 67 Munson Rd.

Originally dedicated the Hall of Agriculture, the building was renamed after Edward Brackett Winslow, president of the Board of Trustees (1908–1911) at the University of Maine. The brick, two-and-a-half-story building with raised basement features a prominent curved gable flanked by two dormer windows. The building is now home to the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture, and the Maine Agricultural and Forest Experiment Station.
