Rufus Porter Museum

Artist, musician, teacher, inventor and founder of 'Scientific American' magazine, Rufus Porter thought well ahead of his time. Porter, (1792-1884) began his artistic life as a painter of portraits. Later he painted the murals that have made him famous. He painted what he knew - landscapes depicting the lakes & farms around Bridgton, Maine, his childhood home, and seaport scenes of Portland Harbor.

The Rufus Porter Museum, the only entity devoted to his work, displays his vivid murals in the front parlor.
