An 180th Birthday Party for James Phinney Baxter

Join us to celebrate one of Portland’s most important civic fathers. A businessman, historian, and philanthropist, James Phinney Baxter (1831-1921) served as mayor of Portland for six years. Among many other accomplishments, Baxter led efforts to create what is now Baxter Boulevard, to secure the land between the Eastern Promenade and harbor as public space, and to build the original Baxter Library. The father of Maine Governor Percival Baxter, James Phinney Baxter was also the president of MHS during a period of unprecedented growth (1889-1921) that included MHS’s move to Portland, the Longfellow family’s gift of the Longfellow House, and the planning and construction of the MHS library. This event will include a reception and birthday cake, and State Historian Earle Shettleworth, Jr. will present a brief introduction to Baxter’s life, career, and contributions to Maine.
