TML Night at The Portland Observatory, with Greater Portland Landmarks

July 20, 2023 -- 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on the other side of the bridge for this unique evening at one of Portland’s most interesting spots! We’re partnering with our friends at Greater Portland Landmarks for this special night at the Observatory. The building will be open for TML patrons tonight only, and guided tours with GPM’s knowledgeable docents will take place on a staggered basis throughout the evening. Come for the fascinating history of the only remaining historic maritime signal station in the United States, stay for the stunning views from the top! The Observatory, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2007, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, became a National Historic Landmark in 2006, and was named a National Civil Engineering Landmark in 2006. If you’ve never visited this incredible local gem before, tonight is the perfect opportunity! 

All are welcome, but climbing is required to reach the top.

This program will take place in person. We will meet at the Portland Observatory (138 Congress Street in Portland), and tours will take place on a staggered basis throughout the evening.

Please register by filling out the form below
and we’ll send you a reminder on the day of the event!

About Greater Portland Landmarks

Founded in 1964, Greater Portland Landmarks‘ mission is to ensure that Greater Portland preserves its sense of place for all and builds vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods and communities for the future.

At a time when the Urban Renewal movement threatened to devastate Portland’s built environment, and catalyzed by the destruction of Union Station in 1961, Greater Portland Landmarks was founded to protect the architecture and landscapes that give the area its distinctive character. Nearly sixty years later, the organization maintains its tradition of advocacy, education, and providing resources to homeowners and developers alike. They also serve as steward of the Portland Observatory (1807).

Over the years, there have been numerous successes, as buildings were saved from demolition, historic districts were codified, and collaboration with architects and developers influenced new construction to fit in with surrounding neighborhoods. 

Through a variety of activities, Greater Portland Landmarks seeks to build awareness, instill community pride, and encourage public participation in the discourse and decisions regarding preservation, planning, and development that shape Portland’s future. As a forward-looking organization, Greater Portland Landmarks was honored to receive a non-profit award from ecomaine in recognition of their sustainability efforts.
