Views of the Old Port Tavern, 11 Moulton Street. A charter member business of the Old Port Exchange (the repurposing of Portland's waterfront district as a place for tourism and entertainment), the Old Port Tavern opened in 1972 as the Mariners Church Building (1828) was being renovated and awarded landmark status. The Old Port Tavern is at the southeast corner of Fore Street and Moulton Street, in the Mariners Church Building. The Tavern's founders were Charles McGee and John P. Parcak.

An exterior view of the Old Port Tavern, from southeast, in 1983 can be seen at this link.
