WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- For its 200th birthday, Westbrook is opening a 100-year-old time capsule at its event.

Westbrook was originally known as Saccarappa after the Saccarappa falls. It was initially a section of Falmouth until February 1814, when it split off and incorporated as Stroudwater. Shortly after it was renamed Westbrook. The name comes from Colonel Thomas Westbrook, a commander during Father Rale's War, which was a series of battles between New England and the Native Americans and New France during the 1700s. Westbrook's primary industry was a paper and saw mill.
