PORTLAND, ME – MARCH 16: A church pew that is similar to what would have been in the original building in the basement of the Abyssinian Meeting House. The historical place of worship built by African Americans in the 19th century fell into disarray and a committee to restore the building has been working toward the goal for 20 years.
