In 1875 a small group of local residents founded the Starling Grange, and for 135 years the hall served as a community center for Fayette, Maine. Grange activities ceased in the 1990’s. In 2014 a handful of Fayette residents created Friends of Starling Hall (FOSH), dedicated to the restoration of this historic landmark to its former status as a Town Community Center.

Since 2014 FOSH has placed Starling Hall on the National Register of Historic Places, attained 501(c)3 corporation status for fundraising, and moved the hall over 30 feet onto a new foundation located back from the state road. Yet this is only the beginning of what must be accomplished.
