Up on the Hill, you'll find the St. Lawrence Arts and Community Center. The St. Lawrence Church itself was dedicated in 1897 and filled the entire city block between Beckett and Munjoy Streets. Although it flourished for nearly 100 years, it recently fell into disrepair and was dissolved and deconsecrated as a church. I think it is still one of the most interesting features of Munjoy Hill. I've eaten breakfast at the Front Room, walked to the top of the Portland Observatory, watched the fireworks on July 4th on the Prom, stopped in to look at art at Elizabeth Fraser's studio, but have never stepped foot in this building. Some of the programs look very interesting. I need to visit this place this summer, for sure.
