When the town of Freeport, Maine had severe restrictions on McDonald’s coming to town…well, let’s say that where there is a will…there is a way!

This McDonald’s location was built inside a preexisting, 150-year-old colonial mansion located at 155 Main Street, Freeport, Maine. William Gore, a prominent Freeport merchant, built the mansion in 1850, according to the New York Times and The Freeport Historical Society. “What we are doing there is something we probably have never done before in terms of design and the amount of time and effort involved,” said Stephen Leroy, manager of McDonald’s media relations, in 1984. ”We are willing to spend the money to make it compatible with the area, the history, the community, and the people who live there,” he told the New York Times.
