Historic Lair Hill Neighborhood Architectural Walking Tour

  • Jul 13, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Lair Hill has an excellent concentration of late Victorian vernacular residential architecture along with well preserved examples of historically significant early 20th century public buildings.

This was a high density, compact neighborhood of Jewish, Italian and other ethnic working class residents for the first half of the 20th century, with buildings that reflect the social fabric of a vital, cohesive neighborhood.  As the Lower East Side was to New York, Lair Hill was to Portland.

Lair Hill survived Urban Renewal of late 1960s and became one of the first Historic Conservation Districts in the city. We'll see how much of the infill and rehabilitation in recent years is architecturally sympathetic to the original character of the neighborhood.

This tour covers about eight city blocks and lasts about 1 ½ hours. Easy walk.

All events being promptly at time indicated in posting.

Cost: $10.
