It is impossible to overestimate the historical significance of the waterfront in the development of Portland. It is where the city began and was the primary engine of its growth and economy for three centuries afterward. The Waterfront Historic District is one of the few intact east coast historic waterfronts and today looks substantially the same as it did in the period 1850 to 1875. Visually as well as historically this area forms a coherent and comprehensible whole. (This excerpt taken from the Old Port website)
