Historic Hollywood District Architectural Walking Tour

  • Nov 23, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Starting at the iconic Hollywood Theater we'll head northeast to explore the built environment along this well-known diagonal boulevard. Most of the commercial buildings reflect the eclectic stylistic pallette of architects and builders of the “between the Wars” period in Portland. We'll also explore the residential area north of Hollywood looking for fine examples of Craftsman, Period Revival and even some Mid-Century Modern residences. We can vary this route depending on interests of the walkers.

This two mile walk follows mostly level city streets and lasts about 1 ½ hours. Easy walk. 

All events start promptly at time indicated for event.

Cost for this event is $10.

    Cool, clear and a bit windy, but we had a good tour of Sandy Boulevard and the Hollywood neighborhood.

    Emma, Sorry you missed this one. Hollywood is firmly on the reprise list, however. Uniquely Portland welcomes well behaved four-leggeds!

    Hey Eric, I'll be just a few minutes late. I hope to be there before you leave the theater!

    Tracy, Good question. This is an "Eric architecture" walk, not that I won't point out some other local spots of interest. This walk is a much shorter distance than the Hollywood/Alameda tour that Tom led last summer. I did the "Hollywood Tour" on August 8 last summer and the tour this Saturday will follow a similar route. Again, focusing on the architectural/historical development of the Hollywood neighborhood.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Tom or Eric-Trying to decide whether to sign up...is this Hollywood exploration similar to the one a couple of months back (the stairs, Alameda Ridge, etc?). Trying to decide what to sign up for :)

    Sorry I'll miss this one, but brother is coming to town. Wanted him to go on it too, but he's unsure about when he'll get to Portland.
