Portland in Middlesex county, Connecticut

Portland, CT

Portland is a rich historic community with Yankee roots running deep.

Portland was once a source for valuable brownstone. This building material was once plentiful in the stone quarries of Portland, and the easy access to the Connecticut River made transportation a breeze.

Country farmhouses, older period colonials, spacious apartments and condo units make up the housing mix in Portland. An active senior center, playgrounds and many popular youth services are provided by the community in addition to strong public schools and adult education programs.

Year-round activities are available to residents of all ages along the pristine shores of the Connecticut River and untouched Meshomasic State Forest. The sparkling river and its banks provide opportunities for swimming, boating, fishing and picnicking. The thick, shady forests and town parks offer plenty of green area for youth sports, tennis, hiking and wildlife observation.
