Better Know a Building - 165 Congress Street


This home at 165 Congress Street (currently on the market) was designed by important Portland related architects Francis Fassett and John Calvin Stevens. It was built in 1875 and is currently split into four units. I always admired the stained glass above the front door and windows.

And the local non-profit organization of the day is Preble Street. Founded in 1975, they offer many programs to help the most vulnerable and needy residents of the city. Visit their website for donation and volunteer information: http://www.preblestreet.org/
