Portland Observatory
The Portland Observatory, built in Portland in 1807, is the last preserved timber-framed maritime lighthouse in the United States. Since the port of Portland is very deep, it was important when building the tower that it was recognizable both from the open sea and from the quays. This gives visitors a wonderful view of Portland and its harbor today. Today the tower belongs to the non-profit organization “Greater Portland Landmarks” and it is possible to take part in guided tours with a subsequent discussion. The tower has been a National Historic Landmark since 2006.
