Albina was the terminus of the first trans-continental railroad and an independent city before being incorporated into Portland in 1891. This was historically a neighborhood with a relatively high percentage of African-Americans. In the mid-20th century this district was an "urban sacrifice" area for the building of Memorial Coliseum and Interstate Highway 5. There are places and spaces remaining in this neighborhood that evoke the late 19th and early 20th century flavor of a working class ethnic neighborhood.
After the walking tour our host, Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider invites you to stay for a while and enjoy a complimentary 12 oz cider, included as part of your tour fee. Around 9:00 PM our hosts will offer a free screening of “The Last Man on Earth” (1964) starring Vincent Price. June 15-25 is Oregon Cider Week and this event is part of the celebration.
