Greater Portland Landmarks has preserved and revitalized the architectural fabric, history, and character of greater Portland — renewing our neighborhoods, spurring economic development and keeping Portland one of the most livable cities in America.
Landmarks’ preservation services program was created in response to the demand for information and resources for people who wish to maintain and preserve their historic properties. Our Preservation Services Advisor answers questions about improving older buildings, provides technical advice on your issues, offers contractor and resource referrals, and conducts field visits to evaluate conditions and recommend strategies.
