Event Details

Constructed soon after the Great Fire of 1866, it opened for business in 1872 becoming a gateway for one of the five largest ports in the county.  New Hampshire granite, walnut woodwork, and Italian marble were used in construction to ensure the building would stand for generations as a symbol of stability, wealth and strength.  The building has been closed to the public since 2001 except through this special 45 minute guided tour. Come see the space a young United States of America created to impress merchants from abroad as they came into Portland, one of the country's biggest, busiest and vital harbors at the time.  

Open exclusively for these 45 minute tours on Wednesdays from June 26th to October 16th

at 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., OR 1:00 p.m.
