State Street Walk

Women in Philanthropy and Religion

The State Street walk begins at the Portland Museum of Art and continues along Congress Street to the former Queen’s Hospital at State Street. It turns east down State Street past sites depicting women’s philanthropic work in both Catholic and Protestant religions. It follows Danforth Street past Gorham’s Corner and back to High Street via Center and Spring Streets through a varied neighborhood, including child care centers and two mansions, before returning to Congress Square. The State Street walk begins at the end of the Congress Street walk and can be combined with it.
