Frances Perkins Homestead Saved from Most Endangered Places List: National Historic Landmark Purchased by the Frances Perkins Center
On Friday, January 3, 2020, following a decade of planning and fundraising, the Frances Perkins Center successfully purchased the Frances Perkins Homestead to preserve this National Historic Landmark as an educational resource for Maine and the nation. This achievement was made possible by the generosity of many donors and friends who seek to honor the principles and legacy of Frances Perkins, United States Secretary of Labor 1933-45 and the woman behind the New Deal.
