A TONGUE OF ICE protrudes from the mouth of a snow-capped gargoyle atop Hubbard Hall at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. The fully operational gargoyle was installed in 2007, replacing the original 1903 version, according to “Haunted Bowdoin College” author David R. Francis. Gargoyles, originally designed to ward off evil with a frightening visage, also serve to carry rainwater from a rooftop and away from a building’s side, according to Francis.
