MHS Helps with Historic Hotel Renovation

The historic Eastland Park Hotel in Portland is currently undergoing extensive renovations. Recently, a company that provides consulting services to developers of historic properties contacted our Image Services Department with questions about the Eastland. They were interested in obtaining views of the façade of the building, the first floor shops, and main lobby.

Manuscript Collection 462 in the MHS library contains materials and photographs of the hotel during its initial construction in 1926-1927. We scanned photos for our client, along with postcards from manuscript Collection 4014.

We’re glad this out-of-state company thought of us, and are proud to assist this landmark building in receiving a historically appropriate renovation. It’ll be great to see the finished product!
