LEWISTON — Work renovating a historic Lisbon Street office building will be recognized by the city May 15.

The Lewiston Historic Preservation Review Board is scheduled to present an ward to developer Jamey Pittman for the efforts renovating his building at 133 Lisbon St., known as the First McGillicuddy Block.

The building, at the northwest corner of Lisbon and Ash streets, is home to Subway sandwiches and eight apartments.

The ceremony is scheduled for 4 p.m. May 15 in Lewiston City Hall.

The Lewiston Historic Preservation Review Board recognizes efforts made in the community each year as a way to mark National Preservation Month. The awards are meant to highlight efforts made to preserve historic structures and places and to help demonstrate the importance of saving history.

The building was constructed in 1895 by Irish immigrant John McGillicuddy. It has housed a number of attorneys’ offices over the years, including McGillicuddy’s son Daniel, Brann and Isaacson, Alton Lessard, Thomas Delahanty, and Charles Pomeroy. Other tenants included Phillips Shoe Company, several music teachers, insurance companies and jeweler Louis Nolin.

The property was owned by the McGillicuddy family from 1872 until 1960, when it was sold to a realty company. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Pittman is scheduled to host a site visit and tour of the building after the ceremony.
