Built ca 1860 by Stephen K Dyer
A rather late Greek Revival in the West End.
Built ca 1852 for Richard Hunt and James Jewett.
A Greek Revival double house on the slopes of Bayside.
The short block of Gray Street from Brackett to Winter is home to an eclectic blend of 19th century houses in varying states of repair.
I, of course, am drawn to the house in the ‘worse’ condition.
Welcome to part two of a focused look at the life and works of Charles Quincy Clapp. In part one, I looked at his early years and some of his earliest, mostly commercial, works. In this section, I am going to focus in CQ’s domestic work, both for himself and as part of the family’s investments.
When the term ‘architects of Portland Maine’ comes up, a couple of names normally spring to mind. John Calvin Stevens is the most obvious and perhaps Francis Fassett.

Built ca: 1840
