Contributed by Maine Historical Society


Architecture commission for an unknown client at Forest Street in Westbrook, ME, 1894. The commission is associated with John Calvin Stevens. This item is part of the Stevens Architects drawings and records collection.

Forest Street Grammar School was built in 1895. Classes through 8th grade met there until 1956 when all junior high classes transferred to the old High School. In 1974 about fifty students in grades 3-5 were transferred to the new Congin Grammar School. Grades 1-2 continued meeting there until 1982-1983 when the school was closed. Following its closure the Junior High Enrichment Center held classes there for a few semesters, then The Maine School of Ballet brought their classes to the building. The School of Ballet left in 2004 and the building was converted to condos by the Westbrook Housing Authority in 2007.
