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.

The educational climate index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Socioeconomic Status (SES) measure. Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
The temperature chart displays average high and low temperatures (degrees Fahrenheit) for the months of January and July.
The weather risk chart displays a percent value for a given type of weather risk as compared to the national average. A percent value greater than 100 indicates the area is more prone to risk than the national average; similarly, a value less than 100 indicates the area is less prone.
