Historic House Island:
Historic House Island is on House Island in Casco Bay and is a short 6-minute boat ride from downtown Portland, Maine. House Island has a history that dates back to its first establishments in the early 1600's with the first house being built on it by 1623-24. The island's history was built on industry and war, not the pleasurable destination it is known for today. The island was a hub for fishermen. It was once owned by the United States and from 1808-1809 they commissioned the construction of Fort Scammel which was used in the War of 1812 and during the Civil War. From 1907 to 1937, House Island was used as an immigration and quarantine station. It was widely considered the "Ellis Island of the North". Remodeled in 2015, Historic House Island has 3 homes for rent, plentiful outside sites for events and ceremonies and is a heavenly retreat now known for its unique history, rugged natural landscape, and maritime beauty.
