THE HISTORIC PORTLAND OLD PORT
Our Portland, Maine location is on Commercial Street, which was constructed in the early 1850s and mostly survived the Great Fire of 1866. Subsequently, it prospered due to the rapid redevelopment of the surrounding neighborhoods, which became more cohesive and residential in the wake of the fire.

The Franklin Wharf (#33) was a landing spot for many passengers on the underground railroad and an embarkation point for their transit to Canada and England. Visitors can walk the Maine Freedom Trail, which originates at the corner of Commercial and Franklin St.
Although many of the wharves which jutted into the Fore River are now gone, what remains are contemporary piers like the Ocean Gateway and incredible views of Casco Bay and many of its islands.
