Signage for the Androscoggin River Trail in Lisbon, Maine

Ben Chebot, Georgia Doucette, Bradley Gee, Gwynneth Johnson

During the Fall Semester 2011, students from Bates College’s Environmental Community-Based Research course partnered with The Lisbon Trails Commission to produce a set of informational signage in preparation for the completion of the Androscoggin River Trail in 2013. Historical Signage was designed with the help of the Lisbon Historical society regarding both pre-industrial and industrial eras of the Lisbon Falls area. These informational signs present a unique opportunity to promote Lisbon’s rich history along the Androscoggin River as the trail itself if located along a stretch of the Androscoggin that has played an important role in the industrial development of Lisbon and in the early history of Maine prior to European settlement. Finally, a set of directional signs was developed to build a connection between the Androscoggin River Trail and Lisbon’s downtown business district. Through this connection, we hope to begin the process of enhancing Lisbon’s commercial vitality by attracting more people to the downtown area.
