Northeastern Business College

(former)

97 Danforth Street

Many young women trained as stenographers, typists, bookkeepers, and cashiers at Portland's various business colleges. Five hundred women held such jobs in 1907, making an average of $8 a week, and 200 were attending business colleges. Although Gray's Business College, which opened in 1895, was Maine's oldest business school, Northeastern School of Business, which operated at this site from 1947 to 1970, was one of its successors. It merged with Plus/Gray's Business School in 1970 and became Casco Bay College in 1974, which moved to 477 Congress Street.
