Two historic buildings and their surrounding grounds recall the grandeur of an early twentieth century resort focused on the waters of Poland Spring. Exhibits include the story of renowned dog sled driver Leonhard Seppala and his lead dog Togo. During the Alaska diphtheria epidemic of 1925 they carried the life-saving serum farther, and over more dangerous terrain, than any of the other teams. In 1926 Seppala brought Togo and the rest of his team to Poland Springs for a race, and was convinced to leave the dogs there to start a breeding kennel. Togo died and was buried in Poland Spring in 1929.
