Description

 

This 11-block downtown area was first platted and donated to the City of Portland in 1852. By the 1880s the strip of land that once served as a fire break had been transformed into one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city – complete with schools, playgrounds, stately homes, and places of worship – all bordering the new park. Amongst the beautiful architecture on this tour, you’ll see a variety of churches, a former high school, and several historic apartment buildings, all while strolling through groves of elms and listening to stories about the area’s history and architecture.

Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
