Wildly Divine: South Solon Meeting House
Updated: May 31
I finally made it inside the South Solon Meeting House! Built in 1842, the meeting house sits at a rural crossroads about 12 miles north of Skowhegan and 62 miles south of the Maine/Quebec border in Jackman. In the 1950s, artists from the then-new Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture painted every square inch of the walls and ceilings with vibrant frescoes. The door is always unlocked, though snow may keep you from opening it in winter, as I've discovered on several occasions.
