The intersection of SE Foster and SE Holgate has a history that spans the early settlement days to the Streetcar Era and Mid-century automobile-centric period of Portland history. Today there are signs of neighborhood revitalization in the commercial and residential sectors of this neighborhood also known as Mt Scott/Arleta. Join us for a leisurely stroll and exploration of this transitional SE Portland neighborhood. Recently, the "Foster Road Streetscape" plan has become a flashpoint of controversy in the neighborhood.

Total distance of this easy urban walk is about 1 mile.

Fee for this narrated tour is $15. You may pay by check, cash or credit card at the start of the tour. You may also use PayPal by following this link:
