The Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has designated the Dragon Cement plant and quarry as a State Significant Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. A dedication plaque was presented to the company at ASCE’s annual meeting in Rockport on May 25. Dragon joins other Maine landmarks with the designation, including Cribstone Bridge to Bailey Island, the Waldo/Hancock Bridge, the Poland Spring House, Portland Head Light and the Maine Turnpike. In addition, Dragon will join other designated sites in a promotional pamphlet highlighting sites from around the state to showcase civil engineering and provide visitors to Maine with a unique opportunity to see noteworthy places of civil engineering significance, according to ASCE.
