Celebrating the Bangor Auditorium

Celebrating the Bangor Auditorium

This year will be the last year high school basketball tournaments will be held in the Bangor Auditorium, built in 1955. The building will be replaced by a new arena. See the story on page 1 of Compass celebrating the role of the Auditorium as the home of high school basketball. Pictured above is the 2003 George Stevens Academy Eagles boys basketball team, who brought home the gold ball that year.
