Cast Iron Architecture and Classical Portland

  • Jan 31, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This walk along First, Second and Third Avenues from Salmon Street to Oak Street, features some of the best surviving examples of Portland's cast iron architecture in one of the earliest National Register districts in the city. Included in the tour are several Classical Revival buildings that defined the image of the city in the early 20th century. Located between the waterfront and city center, this neighborhood has experienced a renaissance in recent decades and is the home to several notable Portland dining venues.

This tour covers twenty city blocks and lasts about 2 hours. Easy walk. 

Walking tour starts promptly at time indicated in posting. Leashed dogs welcome.

Meet at the Soldiers Monument in the middle of Lownsdale Square – located between SW 3rd and SW 4th Ave, and SW Yamhill and SW Main Streets.

Cost is $10. You can pay in advance on-line or cash at the beginning of the tour.

Dress for the weather!

    A large, enthusiastic group of urban explorers showed up for this tour of the south end of "Old downtown Portland". Special thanks to Travis and Susan for helping out!
