Bath Tricentennial - Bath, from its Bicentennial to 1955

By the twentieth century, people became more and more aware of Bath’s historical interest. Perhaps sparked by the production of a 1905 calendar commemorating the town’s 200th anniversary of incorporation, moves were made to preserve Bath’s historic structures. However, both the poverty of the area and lack of funding from outside sources contributed to the lack of progress on such plans. By 1939, St. Thomas Episcopal Church, originally built in 1734-35 had been stabilized and restored, but none of the other historic buildings in town had received similar attention.
