Haskell Library and Theater is a building with two addresses in two different countries.

The Haskell library is spread across two countries, with flower pots lining up as dividers.

This work is a gift from American Carlos Haskell and his wife, Canadian Martha Steward Haskell, to residents of both countries.

Haskell opened in June 1904.

With half the building built in Derby Line, an American town, and the other half in Stanstead, a Canadian town, Haskell is built on two floors of stone in the Queen Anne royal style.

Inside the building there was a thick black line running across the floor.

In the lower library, the children’s section is on the American side while other books and reading rooms are on the Canadian side.

Over the decades, libraries have become centers where people from both countries meet and interact with each other.

Haskell Library is just one of six buildings located on the border of the two countries in the area.

The border (red) runs through the roads and buildings of both the US and Canada.

Additionally, Derby and Stanstead have the same water system.
