The village of Gresham, originally known as "Campground", was a stop-over place for pioneers on the Oregon Trail in the last stage of their epic journey from the East. The village was later named for the US Postmaster who granted the small village a post office. By the turn of the 20th century the interurban railway connected Gresham to Portland and the population grew quickly.
We'll start the walk with a tour of the Gresham Historical Society and then have a walk around downtown to look at the remaining historic commercial and residential buildings and speculate on what may be the future of this growing city.
Easy walk of less than two miles will take about 2 hours.
