The Portland Observatory

The Portland Observatory is one of the city's true landmarks. In addition to the interesting history of the building, it also offers unique views of Portland from it's perch upon Munjoy Hill. Check out the Observatory's website here for information about the building's history and for tour information. The building is open for sunset tours only a few weeks a year, and these photos were taken last Thursday.
