I was up hiking the Maine Huts and Trails around the Flagstaff lake dam ( LongFalls Dam) and seeing the gated area just beyong the dam's road. Wondering what it went to I Google mapped it and saw that there is a building complex in there that has what seems to be two buildings 900-1000 ft long. google has nothing about what is in there, I was wondering does anyone know what the facility is or was? it does seem to be well maintained at the entrance so I asume it is still in use what ever it is. curiosity is my only reason for asking. thanks for any light anyone can shine on this subject.

I don't have the coords but it is almost exactly 1/2 way between GC 1fwpj - A Picnic on flagstaff and the island in the center of Black Brook Pond to the NW . I did notice that google maps shows part of the complex as two long ponds but when you go to the sat. view it looks like two buildings to me. dark on one end and lightening up toward the other.

Looking at the coords that Tom posted it looks like a fish hatchery.

thanks, It just seemed more locked up than the radar station in Moscow before it was shut down and moved.

That's not to keep you out, it's to keep the genetically altered super fish in...... Haven't you seen Jurassic Park? It's like that, but with fish.... :D
