Maine Charitable Mechanics Association Walking Tour

In 1815 Portland’s manufacturers and mechanics – architects, masons, furniture makers, bakers, tailors, ship builders, etc., formed an organization for their mutual benefit and to provide educational opportunities for their apprentices. The association still exists and is centered in its 1857 building at the corner of Casco and Congress Street. The tour will focus on 19th century business and trade leaders who worked together via the Association to strengthen Portland’s economy.
