In the late 19th century Northwest Portland was the most prestigious neighborhood in the city. Today, numerous well-preserved historic residences and apartment buildings contribute to the distinctive character of the community. Situated in close proximity in this high-density area are several worship spaces built during the Portland boom years of 1890 to 1930. Each of these buildings displays a distinctive period revival style from that era.
We’ll view four of these sacred spaces and learn about the history and architecture of each: Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, St Mary’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, the former First Christian Science Church and Beth-Israel Synagogue. On this tour we will also view the interiors of Trinity and St Mary's cathedrals.
The tour covers about six city blocks and lasts about 2 hours. Easy walk.
