South Portland is one of Maine's largest cities, and was founded in 1895 when it seceded from Cape Elizabeth . South Portland served as a major shipyard for the Liberty class ships during World War II, though the shipyard was discontinued soon after the war ended. Since then a number of factors including growth along the Maine Turnpike and Maine Mall areas have contributed to the city's prominence in the state.
