Oak Street Friends Meeting House (Quakers), 83 Oak Street.

Right image: Print of full view of the Meeting House, as it appeared circa1950.

The Meeting House was built in 1850, and the congregation was a "programmed meeting," meaning the order of service was led by a pastor. In 1974, the Oak Street Friends congregation merged with the Portland Friends Meeting (1837 Forest Avenue).
The building at 83 Oak Street was later used as a dance hall, and was destroyed in a March 1980 fire.
