• Westmoreland - Then and Now

    Sparrows Coffee


    Westmoreland is often confused/combined with the better-known Sellwood neighborhood located just to the south. First platted in 1909, Westmoreland was a commercial/residential development that extended along the electric streetcar line. Most of the commercial development in Westmoreland dates from the 1920s and can still be seen along Milwaukie Avenue. We'll have a look at the "village center" commercial buildings, explore some of the surrounding residential area and have a look at the oldest crematory west of the Mississippi River! Like much of "old" Portland, Westmoreland is changing with the times. This is a rather short walk of less than one mile on level urban terrain. The fee for this narrated tour is $15. You can pay with cash, credit card or check at the start of the tour. You may also use PayPal by following this link: http://bit.ly/22q0waD
