Criterion C: Architecture. Local Significance.

The Lisbon Falls High School is a notable example of Romanesque Revival architecture, located in the relatively small industrial town of Lisbon, Maine. The brick school, with finial topped tower, arched windows and doors, and terra cotta and granite accents, was the work of William R. Miller, a prolific Maine architect known for designing lavishly detailed public buildings. Opened in the spring of 1906, this school served as the High School of Lisbon Falls until 1952, then the Grammar School for several years. The Lisbon Falls High School was listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural significance as a good example of Romanesque Revival architecture in the local context, and as a representative example of the schools designed by Miller in the early twentieth-century.
