A.R. Wright cottage plans, Scarborough, 1881

Contributed by Maine Historical Society


Architects Fassett and Stevens of Boston prepared presentation drawings of the A.R. Wright cottage in Scarborough, which he designed in 1881.

Francis Fassett, a native of Bath, and John Calvin Stevens, of Portland, had a Boston office, but both did most of their work in Maine. Stevens opened his own firm in 1884 and was best known for his shingled, cottage-style homes.

This "cottage" has two stories and the drawing shows floor plans for each as well as exterior views of the building planned for Pine Point in Scarborough. A. R. Wright was a coal dealer in Portland.
