South Portland-Corbett Neighborhood Professional Review and Guide

"The Corbett and Lair Hill walks go through a large collection of historic working-class homes dating from the late 1800s to the early part of the twentieth century. This area, once considered a slum, was saved from urban renewal by residents who were appalled at what had happened to the northern part of the community.

But the major highways slicing through it left most roads as dead ends, making it difficult for developers to navigate. Left to itself, it was later rediscovered by a new generation who appreciated the large trees and charming structures of the original small houses. Today these homes are being carefully painted and restored, and every street has interesting examples of architecture."
