*Winter Lecture Series: Early Portland’s Off-Peninsula Life Style and Architecture

  • 25 Mar 2017
  • 1:30 PM
  • USM Wishcamper Center, Bedford Street

Sponsored by Spirits Alive at Eastern Cemetery

Julie Ann Larry, Director of Advocacy for Greater Portland Landmarks, will discuss how Portland’s early settlers transplanted the building traditions and culture of Northern Europe into the wilds of Maine. Though modern development now surrounds these early settlements, Portland’s colonial roots are still apparent off the peninsula in the area of Stroudwater and neighborhoods off Back Cove. What do the surviving colonial homes tell us about life in the 18th century? 

Lectures begin at 1:30 PM at the Wishcamper Center, Bedford St. on the USM Portland Campus, with parking in the USM Bedford St. garage. Lectures are free, though donations are gratefully accepted.

Presented by Spirits Alive of Eastern Cemetery and co-sponsored by the Department of History and Political Science at USM. 

Spirits Alive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of historic Eastern Cemetery (founded 1668) at the foot of Munjoy Hill on Congress St.
