The City of Saco seeks professional architectural services to assess the historic Seavy property located at 90 Temple Street in the City’s downtown. The property is currently owned by the City of Saco. The City has a designated Historic District; however this property, along with approximately 9 other historic properties, is located outside of the district. The property is on the National Register of Historic Places and has appeared on WCSH news as part of the history surrounding a vehicle (LaSalle) previously owned by Lenora Seavey, restored to its grandeur by Mr. Larry Tribble, owner of Southern Auto Auction, East Windsor, Connecticut.
On April 1, 2012, the property experienced a fire that has left the home exposed to the elements and only protected by tarps covering exposed portions of the roof. Maine Historic Preservation staff have inspected the property to determine if it should be delisted from the historic properties list. At this time the State has decided not to delist the property in order to give the community an opportunity to rehab it accordingly.

The property is an 1890 Queen Anne style home originally designed by Josiah Littlefield, a well known New England Architect.
