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 three other 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.  Sign up for our email list to never miss one again.

Self Guided Walking Tour PDFs

In addition to seasonal guided walking tours, Greater Portland Landmarks offers several self-guided walking tours. You can experience these tours through free, downloadable interactive maps here.

To further enrich your experience, review common architectural styles to prepare for your tour.
