We were so thrilled to have a speaker from Greater Portland Landmarks visit us and give a wonderful presentation on Charles Quincy Clapp! Though he was considered an “amateur” architect, Clapp designed some of the most recognizable buildings in Portland. Alessa Wylie, Manager of Education Programs at Greater Portland Landmarks, introduced us to Mr. Clapp and his contribution to the architecture of the city. Her illustrated presentation highlighted his former residence on Spring Street and several of his most distinctive buildings, many of which are located in the State Street neighborhood.
Here are some photos from the event!
