Self-Guided Tours


We also offer a unique family walking guide of 4 different neighborhoods in Portland suitable for kids age 8 & up, enjoyed by people of all ages. Go here to order the self-guided tours or pick them up at the Portland Observatory or our headquarters, The Safford House, 93 High St, Portland.

The city of Portland collaborated with Landmarks to create an interactive GIS map of Portland's 80 historic landmarks. Use this tool to enjoy an historic tour of Portland from your chair, on foot, or by car! 

Guided Walking Tours

We are proud to offer unique tours of Portland’s history and built environment through the lens of historic preservation. In addition to our tours of the Portland Observatory we have a series of regular tours offered June, July, August, September, and October. We frequently add special, in-depth tours focusing on areas or topics of Greater Portland that need their stories told.  Check our events page to see if we have any coming up.
