Custom House, Portland, ca. 1910

Port of Portland's Custom House and Custom Collectors

The collector of Portland was the key to federal patronage in Maine, though other ports and towns had collectors. Through the 19th century, the revenue was the major source of Federal Government income. As in Colonial times, the person appointed to head the custom House in Casco Bay was almost always a leading community figure, or a well-connected political personage. The last presidential appointment was made in 1962, and the system abolished in in 1974.
