George C

George Cleeve statue in front of Portland Yacht Services.
George Cleeve (ca. 1586- after 1666) was an early settler and "founder" of the city of Portland. This statue has been moved around a bit. It's got a bit of a nomadic history; I guess you could say. There was a time that nobody wanted it. I think it's cool... Cleeve is seen looking up the Hill to the city proper.


  1. Haha. You don't think of that often, do you. Unwanted art. It's not like the city of Portland could just shove it into the back of their closet...

  2. There must be more to this statue than meets the eye. It looks like a nice piece of art.
