Description

In the early twentieth century, the Ladd Estate transformed their family farm into one of the city’s most iconic Portland neighborhoods. With windy streets and rolling hills, the neighborhood offered a suburban-style landscape complete with a romantic Olmsted-inspired park, tennis club, and a variety of house styles. This tour examines a portion of the neighborhood near the park. Several standout houses are along the tour route, including the Green-Bitar House, designed by architect Herman Brookman; the neighboring H. Russell Albee House, designed by A. E. Doyle, and the Markham House subject of recent preservation efforts. You’ll also see a variety of other distinctive residences and even a couple of churches along the way.

 

Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
