Located on a peninsula on Maine's east coast, north of Boston, Portland is home to plenty of historical and architectural masterpieces. The city is also a major commercial, shipping and fishing centre. Portland is a gateway to the resort islands in Casco Bay. It is linked by ferry with Nova Scotia. There's a historic trail and lighthouse in the town. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a famous poet, was born and lived in Portland; his house is now a museum. Nearby city of Kennebunkport is worth visiting. Its art colony and Seashore Trolley Museum display more than 200 antique streetcars.
Established in 1632, the community, famous by a number of different names, was destroyed in 1676 by Native Americans and by the French and Native Americans in 1690. The settlement (then part of Falmouth) was damaged by the British in 1775. In 1786, after being separated from Falmouth, it was named after Portland in England.
