1916 Commencement Exercises for Boynton High School at Eastport, Maine, held at the Baptist Church at two o'clock.

The Boynton High School building was designed by Gridley James Fox Bryant in 1847.  In 1917, Boynton High School was closed and replaced by a new building, renamed Shead Memorial High School.  Since that time the Boynton High School building has been used by various businesses and organizations, including several decades as the home of Eastport City Hall.  It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
