Gorham Municipal Center is a complete renovation of the former Shaw Middle School, which was built in 1939 as the town's high school.
The project gives a third life to this much-loved facility and includes town and school offices, Town Council Chamber, Gorham Cable Access Television studio, and facilities for the Recreation Department. The building is completely renovated, with new windows and roofing, new elevator/stair tower, new entries, and all life safety/ADA upgrades.
Its central location near Baxter Memorial Library, Baxter House Museum, and the high school reinforces the walkable nature of the village.
