Moxie Bottle House at the Union Fair

Submitted By:

Among the attractions at the Union Fair and Maine Wild Blueberry Festival is the Matthews Museum, with a specially constructed post and beam Moxie Wing that houses the only remaining Moxie Bottle Stand. This trade show booth, built around 1907, was of oak, spruce, and New England pine, designed with pin-connected sections which could be easily dismantled, transported, and reassembled in “road show” fashion. It’s 32 feet tall and 10 feet wide, and at one time it was actually converted into living quarters, with a cottage attached to it! Photo taken August 27, 2015.
