This House for Sale in Portland Looked Very Different 90 Years Ago
This home on Munjoy Hill has seen a transformation in the last 90 years. Sadly, it's lost some of it's original character and now seems to blend in with the other vinyl-sided, modernized homes on the hill.
I wish we could turn back the clock and stop whoever decided to get rid of the original trim and bay windows. The shutters that once added character are gone and the original porch roof has been replaced by what looks like a vinyl canopy.
The home was owned by Harry Wilson and Mary Brown in 1924. The couple rented out the dwelling for $20 a month.
The home boasts granite and stainless appliances, but I can't help but wish the renovators had done a better job maintaining some original features.
