Editorial Reviews


"Creating Portland is a benchmark publication, of a kind that many of us in the field, as well as general readers, have been craving for decades... this saga is packed with fresh information and ideas, and is a joy to read." --Portland Press Herald

"[An eclectic, informative, and often illuminating history that is pulled together by Conforti's introduction and epilogue, which highlight the continuities and recurring themes that emerge and fill in the gaps between essays . . . Rich in information and detail, and offering focused rather than wide-ranging analyses and interpretations, Creating Portland... enhance[s our historical knowledge and understanding of... Maine communities as well as of the statewide and regional context in which those communities evolved." --The New England Quarterly

"As Portland has become a popular destination for a weekend or permanent getaway, the essays published in Creating Portland provide insights into how and why it became so. Topics include the city's early history, its role as a commercial center, and the creation of its urban landscape." --Boston Globe
