In the early 20th century, Kenton was the heart of Portland’s meat packing industry and home to the largest livestock exchange on the West Coast. Swift & Company, through various subsidiaries, platted, developed, and heavily influenced the industrial, commercial and residential growth of Kenton. This tour shows how a dominant employer influenced the housing stock of management and labor in a neighborhood that possessed many elements of a company town.
