History & History Related Items

Portland history:

The original town of Portland was settled in the 1790's. The town grew in size to over 200 structures, but the floods of 1913 and 1937 destroyed a lot of the town. The people decided to move the town onto the hill overlooking the original site. That is today's Portland. There are only three or four houses left in "Old Portland."
