In peril in South Portland



Greater Portland Landmarks has teamed up with the South Portland Historical Society to take a proactive approach to start documenting the historic architectural resources in South Portland. About a dozen volunteers have been trained to conduct an architectural survey of the Willard neighborhood in South Portland as a pilot project, the results of which organizers hope will detail the architectural and cultural history of the area, and will be shared with the city council, the state and the public. Pictured here are volunteers Chris Closs and South Portland Historical Society Director Kathy DiPhilippo on Dec. 5. The intent is for the project to serve as a model for subsequent efforts to document what exists in other neighborhoods in South Portland. The project is expected to be completed by the end of January.
