Description

 

 

Northwest Portland’s Alphabet District is often thought of for its beautiful mansions, when in fact, it has a surprising history as a "rental" district. The Couch family built some of the earliest upscale rental units. In the 1920s, Elmer Feig became well known for his Northwest Portland apartment designs, and a housing crunch during World War II led to the conversion of many classic homes into multi-family units. We hope you’ll join us as we explore this fascinating aspect of one of Portland’s most endearing neighborhoods. 

 

Parking in Northwest Portland can be a challenge. We recommend carpooling, bus, or the Portland Streetcar.
