Abstract

The John Neal house at 173-175 State Street was built in 1836 in what was then the western boundary of the city. Robert Armitage, the Portland architect whose family has owned the house since the 1940s, believes Neal was influenced by Georgian architecture. Neal prepared for a block of eight granite houses, but the stock market crash of 1836 led to his only building two houses.
