Lothrop Memorial Hall

Lothrop Memorial Hall2.jpg

In 1916 Mrs. Mary Lothrop, a widow of Dr. James Lothrop, gave St. John's Methodist Church a gift of a parish hall in memory of her late husband. With the money she had provided, Lothrop Memorial Hall was built on the corner of Portland Avenue and Mechanic Street. The hall contained a gymnasium and was used for a variety of purposes. In 1945 it was sold to St. George's Maronite Church.
