Architectural historian Scott Hanson gives illustrated talks and historic tours of Congress Square today at 12:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. The city’s planning and economic development department is sponsoring his appearance, but that doesn’t mean Hanson’s a stooge for those inside City Hall who want to sell Congress Square Park to hotel developers from Ohio. The free talks are at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland), followed by the tour. 828-5600. portlandmaine.gov.
