Description

Lillian M.W. Stevens was the president of the National Women's Christian Temperance Union. Her house, pictured here, is located in Stroudwater.

The back of this postcard reads, "Home of Mrs. Lillian M. W. Stevens, National President Women's Christian Temperance Union, Portland Maine. This ancestral mansion stands upon a commanding eminence in the old-time village of Stroudwater, at the very terminus of the suburban trolley line from Portland, Maine, three miles distant from the city's central square. It was built during the first decade of the last century, fully one hundred years ago. At the time Stroudwater was locally famous for its shipbuilding, as many as thirteen vessels having been sent from its yards in one year. Today it is a delightful Sleepy Hollow, filled with mystic colonial houses, and teeming with romance of ye olden time. Mrs. Steven's home is visited annually by many tourists to Portland, and has sheltered many honored guests."
